The sum of two consecutive integers will always be an odd number.

The product of the two integers is -80.

The sum of any two consecutive integers must be an odd number. So this question is incorrect.

The integers are 5 and 7.

The sum of two positive integers is positive. The sum of two negative integers is negative. The sum of one positive integer and one negative integer has the same sign as the addend with the greater absolute value. If the absolute values of the two addends are equal, the sum is zero.

63/2 = 31.5 so the two are 31 and 32.

Divide the sum of the three consecutive odd integers by 3: 159/3 = 53. The smallest of these integers will be two less than 53 and the largest will be two more than 53, so the three consecutive odd integers will be 51, 53, and 55.

10 and 11 are them.

Two integers are additive inverses if their sum is zero

Yes the sum of two integers will always be an integer.

The LCM of consecutive integers is their product. Consecutive integers will not both be multiples of seven.

There are no two consecutive integers that sum to 58. With two consecutive integers, one is even, the other is odd. The sum of an even number and an odd number is odd. 58 is even so cannot be the sum of two consecutive integers.

-4 and -3 is one possible answer. 3 and 4 is the other.

Two positive integers cannot have a sum which is negative!

Two consecutive integers will be 0.5 more and 0.5 less than the quotient of their sum divided by 2. The given sum of the two consecutive integers divided by 2 is -3471.5, so the two consecutive integers are -3472 and -3471.
