1. Denote three consecutive numbers as \( x \), \( x+1 \), and \( x+2 \).

2. Set up the equation:

x + (x+1) + (x+2) = 91

3. Simplify:

x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 91

4. Combine like terms:

3x + 3 = 91

5. Subtract 3 from both sides:

3x = 88

6. Divide by 3:

x = \frac{88}{3}

Since \( x \) must be an integer and isn't, recheck the problem's integers might be necessary.
