Date: 2/16/96 at 13:8:53 From: Lorrane Chung Subject: Consecutive Integers Could you please help me solve this problem: Find 3 consecutive integers whose sum equals 66. Thanks, Lorrane email@example.com
Date: 2/19/96 at 22:37:39 From: Doctor Byron Subject: Re: Consecutive Integers Hi Lorrane, In your problem, if the three integers you are looking for are going to have a sum equal to 66 than their average must be 66/3 = 22. Three consecutive integers whose average is 22 are 21, 22, and 23. I hope this has been helpful. Good luck. -Doctor Byron, The Math Forum
