1. consecutive odd numbers are 2 apart

let the first be x
then the 2nd is x+2
and the third is x+4

"the sum of 4 times the largest is -191" makes no sense, "sum" is the result of addition , not multiplication

If you meant that the result of 4 times the largest is -191, then
4(x+4) = -191
4x + 16 = -191
4x = 197
x ≠ an integer,

your question is bogus, find the error
