The sum of three consecutive integers is 279 Find the integers.
Set up an equation to describe each situation.
The three consecutive integers: x, (x+1), (x+2)
Their sum is 279, therefore:
x + (x+1) + (x+2) = 279
Combine like terms
x + x + x + 1 + 2 = 279
3x + 3 = 279
3x = 279 - 3
3x = 276
x = 92
The integers, 92,93,94, add them up and see if this is right
