A.Write and solve an equation to find three consecutive integers with a sum of 126. Let n= the first integer.
B. In part A, could you solve the problem by letting n= the middle integer,n-1= the smallest integer, and n+1= the largest integer?

  • Algebra -

    n+n+1+ n+2=126
    3n=126-3
    n=41, next 42,next 43

    yes, you can do it that way.
    N-1+n+n+1=`26
    3n=126
    n=42

    so numbers are 41,42,43
