You can solve this in two ways.1) Trial and error. That is, try multiplying two consecutive integers; if the product is too large, try smaller integers; if the product is too small, try larger consecutive integers. 2) Call the two consecutive integers "n" and "n+1", and solve the equation: n(n+1)=210

They are 6, 8, 10 and 12.

One possible answer is -4 and -3.

the sum of two consecutive integers is -241, what is the larger integer?

6,8,10,12

4,6,8,10

There are no two consecutive even integers, consecutive odd integers, or consecutive integers that satisfy that relationship.

Divide the sum of the two consecutive odd integers by 2: 156/2=78. The two consecutive odd integers will be one more and one less than 78, so the smaller will be 77 and the larger will be 79.

There are no such integers.

The larger number is 20.
