Why when every three consecutive number are being multiplied it gives you an answer which is an even number?

Any two consecutive numbers must comprise one odd and one even number, so their product must be even. Any three consecutive numbers must include two consecutive numbers so the result still applies.

What types of numbers can always be written as the sum of two nonzero consecutive whole numbers?

ODD NUMBERS. If you take two consecutive whole (non zero) numbers then one will be an odd number and the other will be an even number. The sum of an odd number and an even number is always an odd number.


Why are 2 and 3 the only consecutive prime numbers?

And they are the ONLY consecutive prime numbers because if you have one prime number (i.e. 29), then there always is an even number right after the prime number (i.e. 30 comes right after 29), and consecutive means "right next to," right? And we all know that even numbers can always be divided in half, so 2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.


What are consecutive even or odd integers?

Consecutive even numbers are any even numbers which are separated by one (uneven) number... so that 6 and 8 are consecutive even numbers... as are 22, 24 and 26. Similarly, consecutive odd numbers are numbers which are separated by one (even) number... so that 11 and 13 are consecutive odd numbers... as are 31, 33 and 35.
