the the smallest of the consecutive number be \(n\) this makes the three consecutive integers \(n,n+1,n+2\) so the sum of them will be \[(n)+(n+1)+(n+2)\] and we know the sum is \(54\) so we have \[(n)+(n+1)+(n+2)=54\] simplify this and solve for \(n\)

THanks you so much! I knew this type of formula would be somewhere lettme figure it out and i'll get back to you

so by simply dividing, it wouldn't be the right answer, so u have to get a letter, and then get the formula

you have found \(n=17\) and we set the consecutive integers to be \(n,n+1,n+2\) substitute \(n\) and you'll have the numbers
