$54 , 56 , 58$

#### Explanation:

let the middle even number be $2 x$

the first even number is then$\text{ } 2 x - 2$

the third even number is $\text{ } 2 x + 2$

so:$\text{ } 2 x \cancel{- 2} + 2 x + 2 x + \cancel{2} = 168$

$6 x = 168$

$x = \frac{168}{6} = 28$

the required numbers

$2 x = 56$

$2 x - 2 = 54$

$2 x + 2 = 58$
