Consecutive just means "following in order", so any method like that will work. 7,8,9 are consecutive numbers. 13,15,17,19,21 are consecutive odd numbers.
x, x+2, x+4 is still right, it's just that my way is easier because the -2 and the +2 cancel each other out sometimes.
Ah, ok thanks. Before I was using x, x+2, x+4. Now I understand what conesecutive means.
Calling the middle one x, the three consecutive odd integers would be x-2, x and x+2.
Four times the sum of three consecutive odd integers is seven hundred sixty-five less than three times the product of the larger two numbers. What are the three integers?
