    since any off integer is in the form (2x+1) then three consecutive integers who’s sum is 183 will be in the form (2x+1)+(2x+3)+(2x+5)=183
    6x+9=183
    subtracting 9
    6x=174
    dividing by 2
    3x=87
    dividing by 3
    x=29
    so the integers are
    2(29)+1=59
    2(29)+3=61
    2(29)+5=63
    to check our answer let us sum up the integers
    59+61+63=59+1+60+63=60+60+63=183
