    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.

    @sylinan, why don't you show your steps for how you got 90

    X+X-1+X-2 =267 3X -3 = 267 3X = 270 X = 270/3 X = 90

    5*6*7=210 6*7*8=336 QED no integers solve this question.

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

    haha i know okay x + x + 1 + x +2 = 267 3x + 3 = 267 3x = 267 - 3 3x = 264 ?

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

    You found out that 90 is one of them. What are the other two?
