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

    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.

    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?

    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

    • 2 years ago

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

    • 2 years ago
  29. Dido525 Group Title

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