# Three consecutive odd integers add up to 129. What are the numbers?

May 17, 2018

$41 , 43 , 45$

#### Explanation:

Let's call the one in the middle $x$. We won't make assumptions about $x$ being even or odd.

$\left(x - 2\right) + x + \left(x + 2\right) = 129$

$3 x = 129$

$x = 43$

It is odd.

$41 , 43 , 45$
