-- method -- We need X numbers which are consecutive, so the middle number will be 1/ X of the total. Divide the sum of the numbers by the number of numbers ... in this case divide 186 by 3. The numbers are to be consecutive and even, so subtract 2 from the number go get one of the numbers and add 2 to the number to get the other number. You now have three numbers which are even and consecutive. Now, place a minus sign in front of them, to turn them into negative numbers For instance 12, 14 and 16 are three consecutive numbers whose sum is 42. -12, -14 and - 16 are three consecutive even integers whose sum is -42 Now you know all you need to solve the problem.

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

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)

Find three consecutive odd integers whose sum is one hundred eighty three Enter your answer in a sequence like this 71 51 61?

Divide the sum of the three consecutive odd integers by 3: 183/3 = 61. The smallest of these integers will be two less than 61 and the largest will be two more than 61, so the three consecutive odd integers will be 59, 61, 63.

Find three consecutive integers whose sum is one hundred and twenty three?

You are told that:a + b + c = 123You are also told that:b = a + 1c = a + 2Therefore:a + (a + 1) + (a + 2) = 1233a + 3 = 1233a = 120a = 40Therefore, the numbers are 40, 41 and 42.
