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

Explanation:

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

Thus, the three consecutive integers whose sum is 30 are 8, 10 and 12
