    Answer:

    Hi there!

    Your answer is:

    Smallest number: 24

    Median number: 25

    Largest number: 26

    Step-by-step explanation:

    three consecutive numbers:

    n, n+1, n+2

    5(n+2)= (n+1+n)3 -17

    5n+10= (2n+1)3-17

    5n+10= 6n+3 -17

    5n+10= 6n-14

    -6n

    -n+10= -14

    -10

    -n= -24

    /-1

    n= 24

    This is your number. Now, plug this back into your previous equations

    24, 24+1, 24+2

    Simplify

    Smallest number: 24

    Median number: 25

    Largest number: 26

    Hope this helps
