I know the answer just not the process.Answer by jvan(28)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hi! ^0^ When the even integers are consecutive, this means that they follow each other in sequence, like 2, 4, and 6 or 10, 12, and 14. We can call the first number x, the second number x+2, and the third number x+4. This means that the second numbers is 2 more than the first one, while the third number is 4 more than the first one =). Now we can rewrite the problem as an equation, "The sum of three consecutive even integers equals four times the smallest integer": . This is our equation. Combining the terms you get . Subtract 3x from both sides: . Yay! Now we know the first number is 6. The second number is , so we get 10. The three integers are then 6, 8, and 10! ^0^ I hope I've helped! ****---->Please visit my website at http://myonlinetutor.webs.com and become a member to get help from me directly \(^o^)/!! Thanks!
