Let x be the first integer. Then the other two integers are x + 2 and x + 4.

Therefore, x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 66

x + x + 2 + x + 4 = 66

3x + 6 = 66

3x = 60

x = 20

So the three numbers are 20, 22, 24.

Results 1 to 2 of 2

## Please help me

Consecutive even integers are even whole numbers that follow one another. For example, 12, 14, and 16 are consecutive even integers. If the sum of three consecutive even integers is 66, what are the integers? and the hint that i got is as follows. (Hint: Let x + 1st number)
