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

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

    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.

    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.

  20. Dido525

    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

  23. Dido525

    That means the other integer must be = x+1 They are consecutive, meaning they come after one another.

  24. Dido525

    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

  28. SSmaths
    • 2 years ago

    the equation can be written as x+x+1=35 then simplify from there

  29. Dido525

    You've already chosen the best response.

    So you get 2x+1 = 35 34=2x
