**Given:**

Consecutive even number = 3

**Concept used:**

Average of numbers = Sum of total numbers/Total numbers

**Calculations:**

Let, the consecutive even number series = x - 2, x, x + 2

⇒ (x - 2 + x + x + 2)/3 = x

⇒ x - (x - 2)/3 = 10

⇒ x = 14

⇒ Largest number = 14 + 2

⇒ Largest number = 16

**∴ The largest number is 16.**
