Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[n^2+(n+1)^2=\] It says the sum of these squares =340 so what should come after that = sign?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to solve this for n \[n^2+(n+1)^2=340 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to solve (2n)^2 + (2n+2)^2 =340 n =6 so 12 and 14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@eliassaab we already got it.

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and @eliassaab this would have worked too \[n^2+(n+2)^2=340 \]

eliassaab

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ 12^2+14^2=144+196=340 \]
