First of all the odd integers would be; x, x+2, x+4, x+6, x+8 Now we take the first and the fifth and the fourth; x, x+6, x+8 So our equation would be; x+(x+8)=3(x+6)-1 Add like terms and distribute the 3; 2x+8=3x+18-1 2x+8-2x=3x+17-2x 8=x+17 8-17=x -9=x So our first odd integer would be -9; What's the next four? =)
