If x = 1st integer x + 1 = 2nd integer x + 2 = 3rd integer Then: x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) = 267 x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 267 x + x + x + 1 + 2 = 267 3x + 3 = 267 Solve for each integer.

X+X1+X2 =267 3X 3 = 267 3X = 270 X = 270/3 X = 90

I just said you did it differently @sylinan. Afterwards, I asked you to continue finding the other two integers.

You can do it either way @sylinan

Both formulas work. All you need to do is figure out all three integers.
