It 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?

In this question, you need to add the 2nd and 3rd integers. What do you get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x+1 then x+3

Sorry, 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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x+1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Not quite. For example, if the first even integer is 4, what is the next even integer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x+5
anonymous
  • anonymous
Whoa. Let's back up. What is the next largest even integer after 4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you know what an even number is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's OK. Yes or no?
anonymous
  • anonymous
The next even number after 4 is 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct. So, if you have any even integer, how much to you have to add to it to get the next largest even integer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the next even number from x would be 2 correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No. If x is an even integer, how much do you have to add to it to get the next largest even integer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It 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?

I'm sorry I'm just really stressed out on this assignment, I've been doing it for over 3 hours.

  • anonymous
OK. Stay with me and we'll work it out together. Can you answer my last question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2+x
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right! Except we would normally write it as x + 2. What is the next even integer after x + 2 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x+4
anonymous
  • anonymous
Excellent. 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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.
anonymous
  • anonymous
What do you get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think I did it wrong. I got 6.
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\left( x+2 \right) + \left( x+4 \right) = ?\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
2x+6
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct. Good job!
