    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 \(n\)

    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
