Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You COULD name them like that. x2, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well idk but i'll be like x+1,x+3,x+5 work too right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Also possible, but also ignoring that they are odd.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but the number choices implies you dealing with odds.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02k  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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have it. 2k is always even for an integer k.
