Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x + x+1= 2,115, solve for x ^_^ consecutive integers are : x, x+1, x+2, x+3 etc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, is it x? or x+1 as a starting point lol @_@

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what do the 2 and 115 mean? that (x)(x+2) = 2 and 115?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not sure, it just puts 2, 115 :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or the (2+n)(2+(n+2)) = 115?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a(2^2) + b(2) + c = 115 is what I think it means

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess it must be product of two odd integers is 115

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just for kicks, let me try this... (2+n)(2+(n+2)) = 115 (2+n)(4+n) = 115 n^2 +6n +8 = 115 n^2 +6n 107 = 0 n= 6/2 + sqrt(36 + 428)/2 n = 3 + sqrt(464)/2 ; but that doesnt pruduce 2 consecutive odd integers for me...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1n(n+2) = 115 n^2 +2n = 115 n^2 +2n 115 = 0 n= 4/2 + sqrt(4 + 230)/2 n = 2 + sqrt(234)/2...which isnt 2/2 so that busts as well.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12,115 seems like a pair of coordinates.... but that doesnt make sense to me either...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does f(2) = 115? and f(2)=115? but then where doe we get the two consecutive number to play into it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if anything the 2 roots would multiply to get a number; but it aint 115..and it aint 2 that I can see

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(n)(n+2) = 2115 n^2 +2n 2115 = 0 n = 4/2 + sqrt(4 + 8460)/2 n= 2 + sqrt(8464)/2....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its either 2 negs or 2 pos to get 2115 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but where is the real prob??when the factorization is correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so product =2115 is the actual problem :)
