Which equation could be used to solve this problem? The sum of two consecutive odd integers is 100. Find the integers. A.2n + 3 = 100 B.2n + 1 = 100 C.n + 4 = 100 D.2n + 2 = 100

How do you convey "two consecutive odd integers"? I mean, if say, n is an odd integer, what's the next one?
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
given a natural number n, then the number 2n is even number and its consecutive odd numbers are: 2n-1 and 2n+1

ok so then wouldn't it be B.

Process of elimination? lol

Let's be systematic here :D 3,5 9,11 21,23 all pairs of consecutive odd numbers. In all cases, you did *something* to the smaller odd number to get the bigger. Now, if n was the smaller odd integer, what is the next odd integer?

hmmmm i'm confused??
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
To get 5, you add 2 to 3 To get 11, you add 2 to 9 To get 23, you add 2 to 21 In all cases, you always did the same thing to the odd number to get the next consecutive odd number. So, if n was an odd number, what do you do to it to get the next odd number? Come on... you can do this :D

guys??

Oh, you. What I meant was if you have a smaller odd integer to get the next odd integer, you simply ADD 2 to it. Given that, if n is the smaller odd integer, what's the next odd integer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea i did do that
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
I didn't mean "add 2" to those example numbers I gave you. I meant add 2... to n. Come one... this is basically spoonfeeding now lol ^^ Peace

well ive been thinking D the who'll time

x + (x+2) = 100
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
*shrug* you were thinking A and B just earlier. hardly "the whole time" haha
welshfella
  • welshfella
lets look at 2n + 2 n could be an odd number and 100-2 = 98 so ?
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
n but close enough. n + (n+2) = 100 just simplify
anonymous
  • anonymous
then it has to be B then right
welshfella
  • welshfella
no not B
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh no sorry A
welshfella
  • welshfella
no i think you are guessing
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
*twitches*
welshfella
  • welshfella
- look at my last post - we were looking at 2n + 2 = 100
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
choice C is offended about not being considered XD but yeah, it does seem like you're guessing. tsk... unhealthy habit, that, and you were so close to getting the answer too :|
anonymous
  • anonymous
no i think you suck @welshfella and thank you very much @terenzreignz
terenzreignz
  • terenzreignz
Thank me later when you get the answer! D: let's start with n + (n+2) = 100 Just simplify it!
