Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It says that the integers are consecutive, so each integer must be 1 more than the integer before it. So, the table will look exactly like the one in the previous question. OK?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In this question, you need to add the 2nd and 3rd integers. What do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, I messed up. It says that the integers are consecutive EVEN integers. So if the first EVEN integer is x, what is the next EVEN integer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. For example, if the first even integer is 4, what is the next even integer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whoa. Let's back up. What is the next largest even integer after 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. So, if you have any even integer, how much to you have to add to it to get the next largest even integer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. If x is an even integer, how much do you have to add to it to get the next largest even integer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It seems you recognize that even integers are two numbers apart. So the next largest even integer to an even integer x is 2 more than x. How do you write "2 more than x" mathematically?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right! Except we would normally write it as x + 2. What is the next even integer after x + 2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Excellent. Now your table is filled out. First even integer: x Next even integer: x + 2 Next even integer: x + 4 The question asks for the sum of the second and third ones. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I did it wrong. I got 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\left( x+2 \right) + \left( x+4 \right) = ?\]
