Answer :
       Let the three consecutive even numbers be x , x+2 and x+4 .
 
         Sum of three consecutive even  numbers = 54
         x  + (x+2)  +  (x+4) = 54
        3x + 6  = 54
         3x = 54 - 6
         3x = 48
         or x = 48/3
           or x = 16
       therefore x+2 = 16 + 2 = 18
                   and x+4 = 16 +4 = 20
     hence three conscutive even numbers are 16 , 18 and 20 .

Hope this helps you!!
Thank You!!
