 Question 309883: 5 times the first of three consecutive even integers is 4 less than twice the sum if the second and third, find the integers a^5 -4 this is as far as I got Answer by mananth(12269)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!let the first integer be x the second will be x+2 The third will be x+4 . 5 times the first integer = 5x. sum of second and third = x+2 + x+4 = 2x+6 Twice the sum of second and third 2(2x+6) 4 less than 2(2x+6) = 2(2x+6)-4 . 5x=2(2x+6)-4 5x=4x+12-4 x= 8 . The numbers are 8 , 10, 12
