Answer :

Let the 3 consecutive odd numbers be x,x + 2,x + 4

According to the question

x + x + 2 + x + 4 = 69

3x + 6 = 69

3x = 69-6

3x = 63

x = 21

(divide by 3 on both the sides)

The numbers are x = 21

x + 2 = 21 + 2 = 23

x + 4 = 21 + 4 = 25

Among 21,23 and 25 it is found that 23 is a prime number

Prime number = 23
