The equation to solve this is...

x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 138

x + x + x + 2 + 4 = 138

3x + 6 = 138

3x = 132

x = 44

x = 44

x + 2 = 46

x + 4 = 48

So, the three consecutive even numbers that add up to 138 are...

44, 46, & 48

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

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.
