Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if n is an integer, then its consecutive is n+1, so we can write this: \[\Large n + \left( {n + 1} \right) = 141\] please simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, since you have to compute this sum: \[\Large n + \left( {n + 1} \right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry, C) can't be the right option. Hint: \[\Large n + \left( {n + 1} \right) = n + n + 1\]
