Question

# The sum of three consecutive odd numbers is $147$.Find the numbers.

Hint: Let the three consecutive odd numbers be $n,n + 2,n + 4$ using these terms find the number.
Given sum of three consecutive odd numbers = $147$
Let the three consecutive odd numbers be $n,n + 2,n + 4$
$\Rightarrow n + n + 2 + n + 4 = 147 \\ \Rightarrow 3n + 6 = 147 \\ \Rightarrow 3n = 147 - 6 \\ \Rightarrow 3n = 141 \\ \Rightarrow n = \dfrac{{141}}{3} \\ \Rightarrow n = 47 \\$
Here we got n value as $47$, substitute the value in three consecutive odd number
$\Rightarrow n = 47 \\ \Rightarrow n + 2 = 47 + 2 = 49 \\ \Rightarrow n + 4 = 47 + 4 = 51 \\$
Therefore the three consecutive odd number are $47,49,51$
