The problem written on the board is to find 3 consecutive numbers with a sum of 63, but the teacher finds 3 consecutive ODD numbers with a sum of 63.

Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to find three consecutive odd numbers with a sum of 63. We start by labeling the first number as X, then find the next two numbers by adding 2 to the previous number each time. We then write an equation and solve it using inverse operations to find that X equals 19. Therefore, the three consecutive odd numbers are 19, 21, and 23.
