    Let, first integer is x.

    Therefore, other two are x+1 , x+2 .

    Now, mathematical expression of given conditions is :

    4x + 3 = 3(x+2)

    4x + 3 = 3x + 6

    x = 3.

    So, the consecutive numbers are 3 , 4 and 5.

    Therefore, the middle integer is 4.

    Hence, this is the required solution.
