If their total sum is 96, just add up all those integers: <---- start here <----- get rid of the parentheses <---- combine the like terms <----- subtract 3 from both sides <------- One of those integers is 31. If one of the others is x + 1, then it would be 32. If the last one was x + 2, then it would be 33. So, the 3 consecutive integers that add up to 96 are 31, 32, and 33.
