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
how do you solve this

x + (x+1) + (x+2) = 33
3x + 3 = 33
3x = 30
x = 10
10 is the smallest of the consecutive integers.
