Nice little problem !

Call the consecutive integers ' x ' and ' x+1 '.

The sum is [ x + 2(x+1) ] = A

x + 2x + 2 = A

3x + 2 = A

Subtract 2 from each side:

3x = A - 2

Divide each side by 3:

x = (A-2)/3 and that's the smaller of the two integers.

The larger one is (x+1) = (A+1)/3

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

There are no such integers.

The sum of two consecutive even integers is 226 What is the larger integer?

114.As we know that the numbers are 2 consecutive even integers, we know that one number will be 2 larger than the other. We can use this to solve the problem with algebra:Where x is the smaller number,x + (x + 2) = 2262x + 2 = 2262x = 224x = 112Therefore the larger integer is 112 + 2 = 114

What is the difference of 3 times the larger consecutive integer and the smaller consecutive integer is 7?
