Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 consecutive even integers.. x x + 2 x + 4 the sum of their ages is 60 x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 60  combine like terms 3x + 6 = 60  subtract 6 from both sides 3x = 54  divide both sides by 3 x = 18 x + 2 = 18 + 2 = 20 x + 4 = 18 + 4 = 22 check.. 18 + 20 + 22 = 60 60 = 60 (correct) so their ages are : 18,20,and 22
