Well, without much ado, let's delve straight to the solution.

If the first number is x, then the second is (x + 1), and the third, (x + 2).

The three add up to 64.

x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) = 64.

x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 64.

x + x + x + 1 + 2 = 64.

3x + 3 = 64

3x = 64 - 3

3x = 61

x =

20.3333 + 21.3333 + 22.3333 = 63.9999, which is VERY close to 64, if you ask me.
