i don't get this question
consecutive integers are integers that differ by one. you can represent consecutive integers as x,x+1,x+2 and so on. write an equation and solve to find 3 consecutive integers whose sum is 33
can you solve
x + x+1 + x+2 = 33 ?
I think Ms Sue solved this same equation for you in the post up the line
33/3=11. Since 11 is the average you have to go down by 1 (11-1) which equals 10. Then one up from 11 (11+1=12) so the answers are 10,11,12. Hope this helps
