The third is 5 less than three times the first number. Find the 3 numbers let the 1st.number=x two times this number=2x..and 4 more than this =2x+4=second number. three times the first number =3x...and 5 less than this =3x-5=third number sum of the 3 numbers=x+2x+4+3x-5=137 6x=137-4+5=138 x=138/6=23 so the three numbers are 23,2*23+4=50,and 3*23-5=64 23,50 and 64 is the answer.
