Call n, the first of those consecutive terms, then three consecutive terms are:n, n +1, and n +2. So, the equation will be n + (n +1) + (n +2) = 467 => n + n + 1 + n + 2 = 467 => 3n + 3 = 467 All of them are valid forms of the equation for the sum of three consecutive integers is 467. You can solve it now, if you want: 3n = 467 - 3 3n = 464 n = 464 / 3 n = 154.6 The solution means that there are not three consecutive numbers whose sume is 467. You can verifiy that if you take 154 + 155 + 156 = 465 And 155 + 156 + 157 = 468
