# What is the sum of three consecutive integers of 71?

There is no set of three consecutive integers whose sum is 71.

### Four consecutive integers whose sum is 290?

In order to do any consecutive integer problem, you should think of the numbers as x's. Here's what I did to solve this problem (and what you can do to solve future problems): (x) + (x +1) + (x +2) + (x + 3) = 290 4x + 6 = 290 4x = 284 x = 71, therefore the four numbers are 71, 72 (71 + 1), 73 (71 + 2), and 74 (71 +…
