**jai**, Monday, November 8, 2010 at 9:57pmfirst represent the unknowns with variables:

let x = first number

let x+2 = second number

let x+4 = third number

*since they are consecutive, and all of them are odd, they have a difference of 2, that's why it's x, x+2, x+4*

now, setup equation using the given conditions:

x + x+4 = 5(x+2) - 69

distribute the 5 (right side of equation) and then combine similar terms,

2x + 4 = 5x + 10 - 69

2x + 4 = 5x - 59

simplify this and solve for x.

hope this helps. :)
