    Step-by-step explanation:

    \huge\mathfrak\blue{Answer;}

    Let us assume that 3 consecutive multiple are x, x+5, x+10

    Now,

    x + x + 5 + x  + 10 = 45

    3x + 15 = 45

    3x = 45 - 15

    3x = 30

    x =  \frac{30}{3}

    x = 10

    1 st multiple=10

    2 nd multiple=10+5=15

    3 rd multiple=10+10=20

    therefore,

    the smallest multiple is 10.
