The sum of three consecutive even integers is 36. Let x represent the first integer, x + 2 represent the second integer, and x + 4 represent the third integer.

Best Answer

Well, then x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) would equal 36

x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 36

3x + 6 = 36

3x = 30

x =10

So the three consecutive even integers are 10, 12, and 14.
