decimals, numbers with exponents or numbers with roots(square root or cube root etc) are not integers.

While consecutive means continuously or successively.

So for your question:

What are the sum of three consecutive integers?

Let's try this:

1 + 2 + 3 = 6 -> this one is a positive even

**integer**

another one

2 + 3 + 4 = 9 positive odd

**integer**

another one

-1 + 0 + 1 = 0 -> an integer (though some mathematicians have some argument if they should consider

**zero(0)**an integer or not)

another one

-3 + - 2 + -1 = -6 -> negative even

**integer**

last one

-4 + -3 + -2 = -9 -> negative odd

**integer**

Result that consist of (1, 2, 3, 4 ...) are

*natural numbers*also called

*whole numbers*while (-1, -2, -3, -4 ...) are their

*additive inverses*and

**zero(0)**is simply zero.

As you have noticed the result can be

*positive*or

*negative*and

*odd*or

*even*but they are all just

**integers**.

I'm not sure if your question was incomplete but i hope it helps.
