I am just saying that the interger we are trying to find is x.

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Do you get that?

I am just assigning a variable.

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
 2 years ago

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
But we are trying to find x. We aren't given what x is.

Wait. Have you even learnt algebra yet?
 2 years ago

TayTay1213 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.
 2 years ago

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so we don't know what the integer is so we say it's equal to x. Do you follow?
 2 years ago

TayTay1213 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah but how do you right that out
 2 years ago

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Let one of the integers be= x
 2 years ago

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
That means the other integer must be = x+1 They are consecutive, meaning they come after one another.
 2 years ago

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Together those two must add to 35.
 2 years ago

TayTay1213 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so would it be like x+(x+1)=35 and x=17
 2 years ago

SSmaths Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
from that equation you have to rearrange it to make x the subject
 2 years ago

TayTay1213 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
can someone show me how to write it out
 2 years ago

SSmaths Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the equation can be written as x+x+1=35 then simplify from there
 2 years ago

Dido525 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So you get 2x+1 = 35 34=2x
