Three times the greastest of three consecutive even integers exceeds twice the least by 38. Find the integers.

  • math -

    1st integer = x,
    2nd = x + 2,
    3rd = x + 4,

    3(x + 4) = 2x + 38,
    3x + 12 = 2x + 38,
    3x - 2x = 38 - 12.
    x = 26,
    x + 2 = 28.
    x + 4 = 30.

    The 3 even integers are: 26, 28, and 30.
