Question: Write an expression for the sum of three consecutive odd integers. Heres an example from the book: Write an expression for the sum of an integer and three times the next larger integer. Let x= an integer (x+1) = the next larger integer x+3(x+1) = the sum of an integer and three times the next integer..... I love math as much as the next guy but this problem is confusing!!!! Any help is GREATLY appreciated B.L.A.c.K __________________ __________________

think of it in terms of number...

say the first odd integer is 1
the next is 3 and the one after that is 5
so it's basically 1+3+5
int, + next int + next int

or x+(x+2)+(x+4)

so as luckydick said...
3x+6...

(p.s you get more marks for showing working).
