BJP4 Exercise 5.13: consecutive

Language/Type: Java if/else method basics return
Author: Leslie Ferguson (on 2016/09/08)

Write a method named consecutive that accepts three integers as parameters and returns true if they are three consecutive numbers; that is, if the numbers can be arranged into an order such that there is some integer k such that the parameters' values are k, k+1, and k+2. Your method should return false if the integers are not consecutive. Note that order is not significant; your method should return the same result for the same three integers passed in any order.

For example, the calls consecutive(1, 2, 3), consecutive(3, 2, 4), and consecutive(-10, -8, -9) would return true. The calls consecutive(3, 5, 7), consecutive(1, 2, 2), and consecutive(7, 7, 9) would return false.
