**Reiny**, Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 4:05pmlet the first be x-1

let the second be x

let the third be x+1

direct translation from English to Math

(math is a language)

(x-1)(x+2 - x = 5(x+1) + 1

x^2 - 1- x = 5x + 5 + 1

x^2 - 6x -7 = 0

(x-7)(x+1)

x = 7 or x = -1, but x is to be positive

so the first is 6

the second is 7

the third is 8
