Excellent!
Incorrect
Consecutive numbers are numbers that go up by `1`.First, write the word problem as an equation`1`st number: `x``2`nd number: `x+1``3`rd number: `x+2`The sum of three consecutive numbers is equal to `72` `x` `+(``x+1``)+(``x+2``)` `=` `72` Solve for `x``x` `+(``x+1``)+(``x+2``)` `=` `72` `3x+3` `=` `72` `3x+3` `3` `=` `72` `3` Subtract `3` from both sides `3x` `=` `69` `3x``:3` `=` `69``:3` Divide both sides by `3` `x` `=` `23` `1`st number Solve for `x+1``x+1` `=` `23+1` Substitute `x` `=` `24` `2`nd number Solve for `x+2``x+2` `=` `23+2` Substitute `x` `=` `14` `3`rd number Check our workSlot in the numbers`x``+(``x+1``)+(``x+2``)` `=` `72` `23``+``24``+``25` `=` `72` `72` `=` `72` Since this is true, the three numbers are correct`23,24,25`
