An answer provided in text says x=6, however ive calculated x=-2 ... am i missing a step or have i miscalculated something? please help. and thank you in advance. :)Answer by Maths68(1474)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let First integer = x+1 Second integer=x+2 Third integer = x+3 Three consecutive integers such that the sum of the first two integers minus the third integer is four. (x+1+x+2)-(x+3)=4 2x+3-x-3=4 x=4 First integer = x+1=4+1=5 Second integer=x+2=4+2=6 Third integer = x+3=4+3=7 Three consecutive integers are 5,6,7
