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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How do you convey "two consecutive odd integers"? I mean, if say, n is an odd integer, what's the next one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0given a natural number n, then the number 2n is even number and its consecutive odd numbers are: 2n1 and 2n+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so then wouldn't it be B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let'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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh, 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets look at 2n + 2 n could be an odd number and 1002 = 98 so ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1n but close enough. n + (n+2) = 100 just simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then it has to be B then right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 look at my last post  we were looking at 2n + 2 = 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1choice 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 :

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thank me later when you get the answer! D: let's start with n + (n+2) = 100 Just simplify it!
