    \[n^2+(n+1)^2=\] It says the sum of these squares =340 so what should come after that = sign?

    So if 2 is the first even integer then what is the next even integer? 2,2+2 right? if 4 is the first even integer then what is the next even integer? 4,4+2 ----- we add 2 ----- if n is the first even integer, then what is the next even integer?
