### Question

The sum of three consecutive integer numbers is 696. The smallest of the three is?

**A**

231.

**B**

232.

**C**

230.

**D**

233.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the numbers be n - 1, n and n + 1. The sum is 3n. We are given 3n = 696, ⇒ n = $696/3$, i.e., n = 232. So the smallest is 231.
