    Can it be x x +2 and x+4?

    It cannot be be x x +2 and x+4.. because if x=2 or any even number , then the remaining numbers cannot be odd integers.. I hope you understood...

    So what I suggest is.. take the numbers as: 2x - 1 , 2x + 1 and 2x + 3

    here you asked about consecutive integers not odd integers so take x, x+1 , x+2 etc

    i distributed, so 5x + 10 = 3x +3x +3 -11 is that right?

    no no its said 11 less than so it means 11 is subtracted from it

    yeah so 3 times the two integer is definitely bigger than 11 so how can you subtract that from 11??????

    i think i did my work wrong tho, I did 5x + 10 = 3x+3x+3-11 5x + 10 = 6x +3 -11 5x+10 = 6x -8 ??
