The sum of three consecutive integers, the least being t is M = t + (t+2) + (t+3) = 3t +6. The sum of three consecutive odd integers, the largest being t is (t4) + (t2) + t = 3t  6. To get the answer in terms of M, we can substitute for 3t that from the first equation is equal to M6 obtaining that the sum becomes M66 = M12. Thus answer D!

If possible can you please explain your solution in a bit simpler way. will be thankful. the wording is a bit convoluted but the question is not difficult. The question says: 3 consecutive odd integers and the least is t. The best way is to pick numbers: 5+7+9=21 Only D is the answer because M 12 = 21 12 = 9 and our t was 9. Hope this helps. Regards

Instead of (t+3), it should be (t+4) because the question is about consecutive odd. The later part is just simplification.
