Question

Question 7
The sum of three consecutive multiples of 8 is 888. Find the multiples.


Solution

Let the three consecutive multiples of 8 be x,x+8anx+16.
According to question, x+ x+8+ x+16=888
3x+24=8883x+2424=88824 [Subtracting 24 from both sides]
3x=8643x3=8643 [Dividing both sides by 3]
x=288
Hence,first multiple of 8=288, second multiple of 8=288+8=29and third multiple of 8= 288 + 16 = 304.
