  1. even integers are 2 apart, so if we let
    the first be n
    the 2nd be n+2
    the rd be n+4

    now just translate the English into Math
    "3 times the 1st " ---- 3n
    "is equal to" ---> =
    "2nd added to the 3rd plus 38" ---> (n+2) + (n+4) + 38

    3n = n+2 + n+4 + 38
    solve for n
