What are three consecutive integers whose sum is 3?
x = first consecutive integer
x + 1 = second consecutive integer x + 2 = third consecutive integer x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 3 {the sum of three consecutive integers is 3} 3x + 3 = 3 {combined like terms} 3x = 6 {subtracted 3 from each side} x = 2 {divided each side by 3} x + 1 = 1 {substituted 2, in for x, into x + 1} x + 2 = 0 {substituted 2, in for x, into x + 2} 2, 1, and 0 are the three consecutive integers Ask the House
