The sum of three whole numbers is 193. The smaller two are consecutive integers and the larger two are consecutive even whole numbers.Find the three whole numbers.

• MATH -

Let the smallest number be x.
x + (x+1) + (x+3) = 193
3x + 4 = 193
3x = 189
x = 63

So the numbers are 63, 64 and 66.

If you are not allowed to use algebra (as I just did), you will have to try numbers just above 60 until you find a group that works.
