Find three consecutive integers such that the sum of the second and the third is 17. Which equation would be used to solve this word problem?

a.) x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) = 17

b.)(x + 1) + (x + 2) = 17

c.)x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 17

d.) 2(x + 2) + 3(x + 4) = 17

remember

+x+=+

-x-=+

-x+=- and

+x-=-

a.

X+(X+1)+(X+2)=17

X+X+1+X+2=17

NOTE: If there is no sign with variables (a,b,c ....z) or constant (1,2,3.......) then the sign will be automatically "+"

3X+3=17

3X=17-3

X=14/3

X=4.66666666666666

X=4.67
