### Re: A problem to solve

Let the three consecutive numbers are $X,X+1$ and $X+2$.So, $X+X+1+X+2=60$.Or,$3X+3=60$.Or, $3X=57$.Or,$X=19$.So,the numbers are $19,20,21$

I think the answer is 19, 20, 21. Cause 19+20+21=60. This is a junior level question!&#128522;

Solution is nice and simply but the way you managed to solve it Tanmoy is definitely not for kids. I showed this to my younger sister and well...it ended up with her slamming the door at calling me a doofus
