Answer:assume you meant to say 3 consecutive integers, which are separated by 1. Then the 3 numbers are

x

x + 1

(x + 1) + 1 = x + 2

The expression for the sum of the 3 is

x + (x + 1) + (x + 2),

which you can simplify. Amelia’s answer is correct, and the down-vote cast against her answer is unjustified.
