* THE SUM OF THREE CONSECUTIVE MULTIPLES OF 8 IS 888.FIND THE MULTIPLES? *

Hi!

Here is the answer to your question.

Let the three consecutive multiples of 8 be

*x*,*x*+ 8 and*x*+ 16.*x*+ (

*x*+ 8) + (

*x*+ 16) = 888 (Given)

⇒ 3

*x*+ 24 = 888⇒ 3

*x*= 888 – 24⇒ 3

*x*= 864⇒

*x*= 288*x*+ 8 = 288 + 8 = 296

*x*+ 16 = 288 + 16 = 304

∴ The three consecutive multiples of 8 are 288, 296 and 304.

Cheers!
