Note that the difference between two odd integers is 2. For example, the difference between  1 and 3 is 2.

Let x be the first odd integer. Then the next three odd integers are:
x+2, (x+2)+2, [(x+2)+2]+2. The sum of these 4 consecutive integers, written in symbols:
x +x+2 +(x+2)+2 +[(x+2)+2]+2 = 248
Simplying, we have
4x +12 = 248 which gives x = 59.
Therefore, the four consecutive odd integers are
0 0 0
