What is the sum of three consecutive even integers is -360?
If you are trying to find the three numbers, they are
They are consecutive, so the average would be
However, they are consecutive even integers. So subtract 2 from one of the numbers and add 2 because it will even out the average. That should get
Considering that the numbers have to be consecutive, the three numbers would be close in value to each other. we'd be looking for numbers that are close to:
So we need 3 consecutive numbers that are close to 120, and sum to 360. Luckily 120 can be considered an element in the 3-number set:
So now we have our set:
