"Three consecutive positive integers"

So if the first number of these three consecutive positive integers is x then the next number is x+1 then the next one is x+2 and their sum is 1341 so,

x+x+1+x+2

3x+3=1341

3x=1338

x=446

Thus, the first number,x, is 446 and the next one x+1, is 447 and the last one (i.e. the largest of these integers) is x+2, 448

448...
