Answer:18

Step-by-step explanation:16+17+18 = 51

(by doing 51/3 you get 17, the middle one).

Answer:Largest number = 18

Step-by-step explanation:Let the consecutive integers be (x-1),x,(x+1)

x – 1 + x + x + 1 = 51

3x = 51

x = 51/3

x = 17

x-1 = 17-1 = 16

x+1 = 17+1 = 18

The numbers are :16,17,18

Largest number = 18
