# If the sum of three consecutive integers is 39, what are the three integers?

Jun 3, 2015

Three consecutive integers can be written as $\left(x\right) , \left(x + 1\right) , \left(x + 2\right)$

$\left(x\right) + \left(x + 1\right) + \left(x + 2\right) = 39$
$3 x + 3 = 39$
$3 x = 36$
 color(purple)(x = 36/ 3 = 12
so ,$x + 1 = 13 , x + 2 = 14$
the numbers are color(purple)(12,13,14
