The sum of 3 consecutive numbers is 147

so, X      (first interger)
     X+1   (second)
     X+2   (third)

*combine like terms

X+X+1+X+2=147
3x+3=147
    -3   -3

3X=144
/3    /3

X=48

(substitute 48 for x)
48+1=49
48+2=50
So the intergers are 48, 49, and 50.

The average of three consecutive integers is the same as the middle one. 49 is the middle integer of three consecutive ones = 147/3. Hopefully, you can find the other two with that information.
