A.Write and solve an equation to find three consecutive integers with a sum of 126. Let n= the first integer.

B. In part A, could you solve the problem by letting n= the middle integer,n-1= the smallest integer, and n+1= the largest integer?

n+n+1+ n+2=126

3n=126-3

n=41, next 42,next 43

yes, you can do it that way.

N-1+n+n+1=`26

3n=126

n=42

so numbers are 41,42,43
