Three consecutive integers have a sum of -414. Determine the three integers. How would you solve this?

Let n be the first integer, then the three consecutive integers are n, (n+1), and (n+2).

"Three consecutive integers have a sum of -414"

n + (n+1) + (n+2) = -414

3n + 3 = -414

3n = -417

n = -139

n+1 = -138

n+2 = -137

The integers are -139, -138, and -137.
