The sum of three consecutive numbers is twelve less than six times the lowest number. The three numbers are 5 , 6 ,7 .
Let the lowest number is x , 2nd number is x + 1 , 3th number is x + 2,
x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 6x - 12
3x + 3 = 6x - 12
-3x = -15
x = 5
x + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
x + 2 = 5 + 2 = 7
The three number are 5 , 6 , 7.
