Three Consecutive Multiples of 8 whose Sum is 888
288, 296, and 304 are the three consecutive multiples of 8 whose sum is 888. The easy way to find the consecutive multiples of any number is to form a linear equation. Let us understand what a linear equation is.
An equation is said to be linear if the highest power of the variable is consistently 1. Another name for it is a one-degree equation. A linear equation with one variable has the standard form Ax + B = 0 where B is constant, A is a coefficient, and x is a variable.
The Sum of Three Consecutive Multiples of 8 is 888. Find the Multiples.
The three consecutive multiples of 8 whose sum is 888 are 288, 296, and 304. These multiples can be easily obtained by forming a linear equation such as assume value 1st multiple ‘x’, 2nd multiple ‘x + 8’ and 3rd multiple (x + 8) + 8.
