What is the answer to this---Find two consecutive integers the sum of whose squares is 130?

If you have two consecutive integers then one of them must be odd and the other must be even. The square of an odd integer must be odd, the square of an even integer must be even. The sum of an odd number and an even number must be odd. Thus, the sum of squares of any two consecutive numbers must be odd. Therefore, the question has no valid answer.

The sum of three consecutive even integers that give you 151 and tha sum of three consecutive odd integers that give you 150?

There are no such answers. The sum of even numbers is even. The sum of odd numbers could be even, but the sum of three consecutive odd numbers is always odd. One could swap the questions to get potentially answerable questions: Sum of 3 consecutive EVEN integers = 150 48 + 50 + 52 = 150 unfortunately, we can already see that if we were to make these odd integers (add 1 to each), we would get 153, not 151. Sum of 3 consecutive ODD integers = 151 49 + 51 + 53 = 153 47 + 49 + 51 = 147 We can see that, whenever we slide our three consecutive integers up one, we raise the value of the sum up 3, and if we jump from odd to odd, or even to even, we raise each integer by 2, so we raise the sum by 6.


The sum of two consecutive numbers is 118 What must you do to get to the next greater even integer?

The sum of 2 consecutive numbers cannot be 118, because you cannot get an even number when you add an even and an odd number.


Why is the sum of consecutive odd integers always a multiple of 4?

It is quite easy to prove this using algebra. Suppose x is the smaller of the two odd integer. The fact that x is odd means that it is of the form 2m + 1 where m is an integer. [m integer => 2m is an even integer => 2m + 1 is odd] The next odd integer will be x + 2, which is (2m + 1) + 2 = 2m + 3 The sum of these two consecutive odd integers is, therefore, 2m + 1 + 2m + 3 = 4m + 4 = 4(m + 1) Since m is an integer, m+1 is an integer and so 4(m + 1) represents a factorisation of the answer which implies that 4 is a factor of the sum. In other words, the sum is a multiple of 4.


The sum of three consecutive odd integers is equal to 39?

You can always guess and check! When they are consecutive, it means they must be the next odd integer up from the last. For this, it is 11, 13, 15. 11+13+15= 39
