# The sum of three consecutive integers is 162, what are the integers?

Jul 7, 2015

The integers will be: $53 , 54 , 55$.

#### Explanation:

Call your integers: $n , n + 1 , n + 2$ so you get:
$n + \left(n + 1\right) + \left(n + 2\right) = 162$
$3 n + 3 = 162$
$3 n = 159$
so:
$n = 53$
The integers will then be: $53 , 54 , 55$.
