the sum of two consecutive integers is -241, what is the larger integer?
x+3 and x+4 would be consecutive integers.
There can be no such integers: a smaller integer cannot be 5 times the larger number.
5 and 6
One possible answer is -4 and -3.
116 + 118 = 234. Answer is 118. Took 5 seconds to do.
114.As we know that the numbers are 2 consecutive even integers, we know that one number will be 2 larger than the other. We can use this to solve the problem with algebra:Where x is the smaller number,x + (x + 2) = 2262x + 2 = 2262x = 224x = 112Therefore the larger integer is 112 + 2 = 114
There are no two consecutive even integers, consecutive odd integers, or consecutive integers that satisfy that relationship.
It means the next larger whole number.
3*(x+1) - x = 7 So 3x + 3 - x = 7 then 2x = 4 or x = 2 So the two integers are 2 and 3
