Remember from the previous example that three consecutive integers can be represented by X, X plus 1, and X plus 2. Let's call X our first integer, X plus 1 our second, and X plus 2 our third. Since the sum of our three consecutive integers is 24, our equation will read X plus X plus 1 plus X plus 2 equals 24. Simplifying on the left, we get 3 X plus 3 equals 24. Subtract 3 from both sides and 3X equals 21. Divide both sides by 3, and X equals 7. So our first integer, X, equals 7. Our second integer, X plus 1, would then equal 8. And our third integer, X plus 2, would be 9. Therefore, our answers are 7, 8, and 9.
