1. If the first and third of three consecutive odd integers are added, the result is 51 less than five times the second integer. Find the third integer.
Let the 3 numbers be x, (x + 1) and (x + 2).
Then, x + (x + 2) = 5(x + 1)  51
Solve for x.
We want "three consecutive odd integers". These look like
2k+1, 2k+3, and 2k+5
We're told
2k+1 + 2k+5 = 5*(2k+3)  51 so
4k+6 = 10k + 15  51 or after rearranging
42 = 6k and k=7 so the numbers are
15,17 and 19
Test:
15 + 19 = 5*17 51 or
34 = 85  51
