Answer

-39, -38, -37

Work Step by Step

If we call the first integer x, the next consecutive integer would be x + 1, and the third consecutive integer would be x + 2. If their sum equals -114, the equation is: x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) = -114 Solve for x: 3x + 3 = -114 3x = -117 x = -39 The first integer is x = -39. The second integer is x + 1 = -39 + 1 = -38 The third integer is x + 2 = -39 + 2 = -37
