L = 22 - x. There is no solution in integers for this statement: it is not possible in this Universe for two consecutive numbers to add to an even number. Nearest answer is 10½ and 11½.

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.

The two numbers can be thought of as: Smaller Odd Number = x + 1 (Add one to ensure it is an odd number) Larger Consecutive Odd Number = Smaller Number + 2 = x + 1 + 2 = x + 3 We know that Smaller Odd Number + Larger Consecutive Odd Number = 100 (X + 1) + (x + 3) = 100 2x + 4 = 100 2x = 96 x = 48 Smaller Odd Number = 48 + 1 = 49 The smaller odd number is 49. The next consecutive odd number of course is 51.

The sum of two consecutive integers can not be even unless both are even or both are odd.x+y=70y=4+2xx+(4+2x)=704+3x=703x=70-43x=66x=22y=70-22y=48The two numbers are 22 and 48. 22 is the smaller.

Consecutive integers are integers that follow in sequence. Each number is 1 more than the previous numbers.

There can be no such integers: a smaller integer cannot be 5 times the larger number.

Smaller number is '6'

The larger number is 20.

Let the smaller be n, then the larger is n+1; and: n + 4(n+1) = 59 → n + 4n + 4 = 59 → 5n = 55 → n = 11 → the two consecutive integers are 11 and 12.

No two consecutive integers can add up to 98.No three consecutive integers can add up to 98.But 23, 24, 25, and 26 can.

It is 23.

Two negative consecutive odd integers that have a product of 63 are -7 and -9. -7 is larger than -9. -7 is the answer.

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

The product of 2 consecutive positive number is 48. Find the 2 numbers

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

48 = 6 x 8, so the smaller is 6.
