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)
⇒ 3x + 24 = 888
⇒ 3x = 888 – 24
⇒ 3x = 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!
