if the first odd number is x, then consecutive odd numbers can be found by adding two to the previous one.thus the three consecutive odd numbers will be x, x+2,x+4 the largest of the three will be x+4. twice of the smallest will be 2x. it is given that their sum is 25. so x+4+2x=25 Does that help?

if the smallest even number is n, then the next two even numbers will be n+2 and n+4.
