Say three integers are a, b, and c in order a < b < c

Given = a + b + c / 3 = 76

a + b+ c = 76 * 3

a + b+ c = 228 -----> (I)

From st 1: b = 82 ------> (II)

Use in (I) a + c = 228 - 82 = 146 (No info about a & c (Insufficient)

From st 2: c - a = 54 -------> (III)

No information about "b" (Insufficient)

Combining 1 & 2 we get

c + a = 146

c - a = 54

c = 100

Cancelling out "a" we get c = 100

Putting c = 100 in any of the three equations we get a = 46 Sufficient (C)
