**herp_derp**, Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 6:31pmahh...those algebra days...

so, anyways, here's what u do...

1) identify the variables:

Let the 1st integer be "x"

Let the 2nd integer be "(x+1)"

Let the 3rd integer be "(x+2)"

2) now, set up the equation...

3(x+2) - 9 = x + (x+1)

3) SOLVE away!!! :D

3x + 6 - 9 = 2x + 1

3x - 3 = 2x + 1

x = 4

4) NOW the three consecutive integers will be...

{ 4, 5, 6, }

--------

YAY, the answer :D

now, DONT FORGET TO HERP THE DERP!!!
