```							Please find the answer to your questionLet the sides of ?be n, n + 1, n + 2 where n? N.Let a = n, b = n + 1, c = n + 2 Let the smallest, angle ? A = ? then the greatest ?C = 2? In ?ABC by applying Sine Law we get, Sin ?/n = sin 2 ?/n + 2 ? sin ?/n = 2 sin ? cos ?/ n + 2 ? 1/n = 2 cos ?/n + 2 (as sin ? ? 0) ? cos ? = n + 2/2n . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (1) In ? ABC by Cosine Law, we get Cos ? = (n + 1)2 + (n + 2)2 – n2/2(n + 1) (n + 2) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (2) Comparing the values of cos ? from (1) and (2), we get (n + 1)2 + (n + 2)2 – n2/2(n + 1) (n + 2) = n + 2/2n ? (n + 2)2 (n + 1) = n(n + 2)2 + n(n + 1)2 – n3 ? n (n + 2)2 (n + 2)2 = n(n + 2)2 + n(n + 1)2 – n3 ? n2 + 4n + 4 = n3 + 2n2 + n – n3 ? n2 – 3n – 4 = 0 ? (n + 1) (n – 4) = 0 ? n = 4 (as n ? - 1) ? Sides of ? are 4, 4 + 1, 4 + 2, i.e. 4, 5, 6.
