: IF it is odd integers:
: (2x+1) + (2x+3) + (2x+5) = 279
: 6x = 270
: x = 45
: 2x+1 = 91
: 2x+3 = 93
: 2x+5 = 95
: Note that 2x+1 represnts an odd integer (since 2 * (any integer) = even)
yes... but if we want consecutive odd we can also use x, x+2, and x+4 (x odd)
and same result...
or even better (just my opinion), if three consecutive numbers, divide sum by three and we have the middle number.
