The two numbers can be thought of as: Smaller Odd Number = x + 1 (Add one to ensure it is an odd number) Larger Consecutive Odd Number = Smaller Number + 2 = x + 1 + 2 = x + 3 We know that Smaller Odd Number + Larger Consecutive Odd Number = 100 (X + 1) + (x + 3) = 100 2x + 4 = 100 2x = 96 x = 48 Smaller Odd Number = 48 + 1 = 49 The smaller odd number is 49. The next consecutive odd number of course is 51.

What are the two consecutive integers with the sum of one hundred?

None exist. 100 is an even number and two consecutive integers can only add up to an odd number. This is because only 2 evens can add up to an even number and no two even numbers are consecutive. (or two odds, but no two odd numbers are consecutive either)

What is consecutive composite numbers?

Basically, composite numbers are the non-prime numbers. Take a table of prime numbers, and look for any two prime numbers, one after the other, that have a difference greater than 2. Any numbers in between are consecutive composite numbers. For example, the next prime number after 13 is 17; that makes 14, 15, and 16 three consecutive non-primes, i.e., composite numbers.

What four consecutive even numbers have a sum of 412?

As all the required numbers are even, we can identify the smallest value number as 2a, then the other three consecutive even numbers are (2a + 2), (2a + 4) and (2a + 6). The sum of these four numbers is, 2a + (2a + 2) + (2a + 4) + (2a + 6) = 8a + 12 Then, 8a + 12 = 412 8a = 412 - 12 = 400 2a = 400 / 4 = 100 The four consecutive even numbers are 100, 102, 104 & 106. NOTE : In this problem the choice of 'a' as the smallest value number would have achieved the correct answer but in other situations such a choice could have resulted in 4 consecutive ODD numbers being found. When in doubt use 2a or similar to clearly identify that the number is even.
