Find three consecutive odd integers such that the sum of the smallest and four times the largest is 61. Please list the numbers from least to greatest with just a space in between

We denote x, x+2, x+4 as the odd integers. We construct the following equation:

x+4x+16=61

5x=45

x=9

So our final answer is 9 11 13.

That first line is the multiplied-out equivalent of 4*(x+4). 

It took me a while to see that, maybe this note will save the next guy a couple of minutes.
