Can you help me set this problem? it is as follows, "Find three consecutive odd integers such that their sum is 5 more than four times the larger."

Let the middle odd integer be n, then the three consecutive integers are n2, n, and n+2.
Their sum is (n2)+n+(n+2)=3n
If the sum is 5 more than four times the larger, then
3n=4(n+2)+5
Solve for n.
(Note: n is a negative integer!)
