# Find three consecutive even numbers whose sum is 312.

Hint:

### let the three consecutive even numbers be 2n , 2n + 2 ,2n + 4

Given, the sum of these three consecutive even numbers is 312.

(i. e 2n + 2n + 2 + 2n + 4 = 312)

## The correct answer is: 102 , 104 and 106

### Ans :- 102 , 104 and 106

Explanation :-

let the three consecutive even numbers be 2n , 2n+2 ,2n+4

Given, the sum of these three consecutive even numbers is 312.

so,2n +2n+2+2n+4 = 312

6n+6 = 312

6n = 306

3(2n) = 306

∴ 2n = 102

Then 2n+2 =102 +2 = 104 ; 2n+4 = 102 + 4 = 106

102 , 104 and 106 are the three consecutive even numbers that satisfy the given condition
