find three consecutive numbers if three times the middle number is greater than the sum of the first and the last number by 176 About the author Anna

Answer :- Given :- 3 × middle term = first term + last term + 176 To Find :- The three consecutive numbers Solution :- Let the three consecutive numbers be x , x + 1 , x + 2. According to the question :- 3 × middle term = first term + last term + 176 → 3 ( x + 1 ) = x + x + 2 + 176 → 3x + 3 = 2x + 178 → 3x – 2x = 178 – 3 → x = 175 → x + 1 = 175 + 1 = 176 → x + 2 = 175 + 2 = 177 The three consecutive numbers are 175 , 176 , 177. Verification :- → LHS = 3 ( x + 1 ) → LHS = 3 ( 175 + 1 ) → LHS = 3 × 176 → LHS = 528 → RHS = x + x + 2 + 176 → RHS = 175 + 175 + 2 + 176 → RHS = 175 + 177 + 176 → RHS = 528 LHS = RHS Hence verified.

## Answer :-

## Given :-

## To Find :-

## Solution :-

Let the three consecutive numbers be x , x + 1 , x + 2.

According to the question :-

3 × middle term = first term + last term + 176

→ 3 ( x + 1 ) = x + x + 2 + 176

→ 3x + 3 = 2x + 178

→ 3x – 2x = 178 – 3

→ x = 175

→ x + 1 = 175 + 1 = 176

→ x + 2 = 175 + 2 = 177

## The three consecutive numbers are 175 , 176 , 177.

## Verification :-

→ LHS = 3 ( x + 1 )

→ LHS = 3 ( 175 + 1 )

→ LHS = 3 × 176

→ LHS = 528

→ RHS = x + x + 2 + 176

→ RHS = 175 + 175 + 2 + 176

→ RHS = 175 + 177 + 176

→ RHS = 528

LHS = RHS

Hence verified.
