Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1consecutive odd integers: have a difference of 2 between each of the numbers, and theyre odd, aka 1,3,5... etc \[2n + (2n+1) +(2n+3)=45\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I would solve the equation n+(n+2)+(n+4)=45 but I think @Jhannybean meant to say (2n1)+(2n+1)+(2n+3)=45 which is also a great route to go :)
