Expert Answer

Let the three consecutive integers be n, n+1 and n+2

Case1: n is divisible by 3. Then we are done

Case2: n is not divisible by 3.

Then the number is a multiple of a prime number other than 3. Adding 1 or 2 to any such number will make it divisible by 3.

If adding 1 makes it divisible by 3, then n+1 is divisible by 3.

If adding 2 makes it divisible by 3, then n+2 is divisible by 3.

Hence we are done.
