Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0n and n+1 are consecutive numbers their product is 182 so that means we have n(n+1)=182 => \[n^2+n=182= > n^2+n182=0\] \[(n+14)(n13)=0\] \[=> n=14 \text{ or } n=13\] But n=13 since 13 is the only positive number here and n+1=13+1=14 the page numbers are 13,14
