Tom wrote 3 consecutive natural numbers. From these numbers' cube sum he took away the triple product of those numbers and divided by the arithmetic average of those numbers. What number did Tom write?
Final number that Tom wrote was
Note: much of this depend upon my correctly understanding the meaning of various parts of the question.
3 consecutive natural numbers
I assume this could be represented by the set
these numbers' cube sum
I assume this could be represented as
the triple product of these numbers
I assume this means triple the product of these numbers
So these numbers' cube sum minus the triple product of these numbers would be
the arithmetic average of these three numbers
