    You COULD name them like that. x-2, x, x+2 is ad valid. Also, this could just as easily be 3 even integers. The requirement that then be odd is entirely lost.

    Also possible, but also ignoring that they are odd.

    yeah but the number choices implies you dealing with odds.

    No, it doesn't. If you wany odd you must say so. If you want even, you must say so. There is no implication. For an integer, k, 2k - 1, 2k+1, 2k+3 -- Now THAT is three consecutive ODD Integers.

    it is true... 3 consecutive odds are x, x + 2, x + 4

    x, x + 2, x + 4 can also be written as x+0, x + 2, x + 4 if i saw that i would think i dealing with evens

    Well, it depends on value of x.

    not necessarily....value of x can be 3 making it deal with odds

    2k - 1, 2k+1, 2k+3 -- Now THAT is three consecutive ODD Integers. adding to Tkhunny 2k+0, 2k+2, 2k+4 is guaranteed even right?

    You have it. 2k is always even for an integer k.
