@TayTay1213 : I am saying 1 interger is x. If they are consecutive, the next term must be x+1

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