Find three consecutive odd integers such that four times the middle integer is two more than the sum of the first and third.

I think I'm doing it wrong.
4((x)+(x+2)=x+(x+4)+2
4(2x+4)=2+3x+6
8x+16=3x+8
5x=8 ?

Please help

  1. A real estate agent sold two homes and received commissions totaling $6000. The agent's commission on one home was one and one-half times the commission on the second home. If p represents the smaller commission, write an equation to determine the agent's commission on each home.

    P= smaller number
    6000-P= Larger number

    I don't get how to write it as an equation
