The sum of three consecutive even integers is 114. what are the three integers?

i am not good at math so i need help with math

M O.

Set up your problem like this:
 
a+b+c=114
a+1=b
a+2=c
b+1=c
 
Now just substitute and solve. I'll solve for a:
 
a+b+c=114
a+(a+1)+(a+2)=114
3a=111
a=37
 
Then solve for b and c:
 
a+1=b
37+1=b
b=38
 
a+2=c
37+2=c
c=39

Right approach but note that the integers are even.
