can you write that in an equation so i can right it like that on my paper
17 + 18
@SSmaths : Don't just give the answer...
@TayTay1213 : I am saying 1 interger is x. If they are consecutive, the next term must be x+1
im confused on how to do that
I am just saying that the interger we are trying to find is x.
Do you get that?
I am just assigning a variable.
I am saying that integer we are trying to find is x.
I get it so would it be like 17+(17+1)=35 so x would equal 17
But we are trying to find x. We aren't given what x is.
Wait. Have you even learnt algebra yet?
well we are learning how to but i cant remember doing this
The idea is that if you don't know what something is you say it's equal to x.
so we don't know what the integer is so we say it's equal to x. Do you follow?
yeah but how do you right that out
Let one of the integers be= x
That means the other integer must be = x+1 They are consecutive, meaning they come after one another.
Together those two must add to 35.
so would it be like x+(x+1)=35 and x=17
from that equation you have to re-arrange it to make x the subject
can someone show me how to write it out
the equation can be written as x+x+1=35 then simplify from there
So you get 2x+1 = 35 34=2x
