The number 1341 can be written as the sum of three consecutive positive integers. What is the largest of these integers?

Let x be the largest

the one below it   is   x-1  and the other is x-2

 

added together =1341

x +  x-1 + x-2 =1341

3x-3  = 1341

3x = 1344

x = 448

You have made a little error EP

The largest one is x+1   (not x+2)
