    Five times the smallest of three consecutive odd integers is ten more than twice the longest.

    Let the middle integer be x.
    then the three odd integers are x-2, x, x+2.

    Five times the smallest = 5(x-2)
    ten more than twice the longest= 2(x+2)+10

    so
    5(x-2) = 2(x+2) + 10
    5x-10 = 2x+4 + 10
    5x-2x = 4 + 10 + 10
    3x = 24
    x = 8
    The three integers are 6,8 and 10.
