Sunday Times Teaser 2872 – Appropriate Arithmetic

by Victor Bryant

Published October 8 2017 (link)

I wrote down three two-figure numbers, one of which was double one of the others. Overall the three numbers used six consecutive digits between them. I then added up the three numbers to give a three-figure sum, and I also multiplied together the three numbers to give a five-figure product. Replacing digits consistently by letters my two answers, appropriately, were ADD and TIMES.

What were the three original numbers?
