    bro #1= x bro #2= x+1 bro#3= x+2 u want all 3 to add up to 96 so x+x+1+x+2=96 combine like terms 3x+3=96 subtract 3 from both sides 3x=96 divide both sides by 3 31 is the answer therefore the next brothers ages will be 32 and 33 to check, add 31+32+33 does this make sense?

    31+32+33= 97 so your answer would be 31, 32, and 33
