Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you want the method to solve them, assume the numbers x and x+1, then: \[x(x+1)=110 \implies x^2+x110=0 \implies (x10)(x+11)=0\] So x is either 10 or 11. Hence the numbers are either (10 and 11) or (11 and 10).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2+x110=0 (x10)(x+11)=0 i'm fine x=10 x=11 if x=10, then x+1=10+1=11 since (11)(10)=110 you could also do if x=11, then x+1=11+1=10 since (11)(10)=110
