Lesson 8: Linear equations word problems# Sum of integers challenge

The sum of three consecutive odd integers is 231. First let's identify the integers. If the smallest is x, what is the value of the next odd integer? Then we set up an equation, adding all three integers to get their total. We can solve for x, the smallest integer. Once we know the smallest, what is the largest integer?
