Question: The sum of three consecutive even integers is 30. What are the integers?
An integer is a number with no decimal or fractional part, from the set of negative and positive numbers, including zero.
Answer: The three consecutive integers whose sum is 30 are 8, 10, and 12.
Even numbers are those numbers that are exactly divisible by 2
Let the three consectuive integers be x, x + 2, and x + 4.
Hence, the sum will be given by:
x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 30
3x + 6 = 30
x = 8
