**Reiny**, Saturday, March 17, 2012 at 1:22pmlet the sides be x-1, x, and x+1

x-1+x+x+1 > 2008

3x > 2008

x > 669.333

but x must be a whole number

if x = 669, the 3 sides would be 668 669 and 670 for a perimeter of 2007 , no good

if x = 670, the 3 sides would be 669 670 and 671 for a perimeter of 2010 , ok

so x = 670
