### Question

The sum of three consecutive integer numbers is -1113. The smallest of the three is?

**A**

-372.

**B**

-371.

**C**

-369.

**D**

-370.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the numbers be n - 1, n and n + 1. The sum is 3n. We are given 3n = -1113, ⇒ n = $-1113/3$, i.e., n = -371. So the smallest is -372.
