@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
 one year ago

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I am just saying that the interger we are trying to find is x.

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I am just assigning a variable.

I am saying that integer we are trying to find is x.
 one year ago

I get it so would it be like 17+(17+1)=35 so x would equal 17
 one year ago

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
But we are trying to find x. We aren't given what x is.

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Wait. Have you even learnt algebra yet?
 one year ago

TayTay1213Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
well we are learning how to but i cant remember doing this
 one year ago

The idea is that if you don't know what something is you say it's equal to x.
 one year ago

Dido525Best 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?
 one year ago

TayTay1213Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah but how do you right that out
 one year ago

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Let one of the integers be= x
 one year ago

Dido525Best 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.
 one year ago

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Together those two must add to 35.
 one year ago

TayTay1213Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so would it be like x+(x+1)=35 and x=17
 one year ago

SSmathsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
from that equation you have to rearrange it to make x the subject
 one year ago

TayTay1213Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
can someone show me how to write it out
 one year ago

SSmathsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the equation can be written as x+x+1=35 then simplify from there
 one year ago

Dido525Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So you get 2x+1 = 35 34=2x
