Can it be x x +2 and x+4?
midhun.madhu1987
  • midhun.madhu1987
It cannot be be x x +2 and x+4.. because if x=2 or any even number , then the remaining numbers cannot be odd integers.. I hope you understood...

So what I suggest is.. take the numbers as: 2x - 1 , 2x + 1 and 2x + 3
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
here you asked about consecutive integers not odd integers so take x, x+1 , x+2 etc
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
let the 3 integers be x,x+1,x+2
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
yes

@glitterythings whats your answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
im solving it rn, thank you.!
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
no problem ..
anonymous
  • anonymous
i distributed, so 5x + 10 = 3x +3x +3 -11 is that right?
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
correct:)
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
then?
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
no it's wrong
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
5x+10=11-3(x+x+1)
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh lol
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
now solve it ..
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
no no its said 11 less than so it means 11 is subtracted from it
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
@glitterythings do the way i told you
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
less means subtraction ok
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
yeah so 3 times the two integer is definitely bigger than 11 so how can you subtract that from 11??????
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
rather 11 is subtracted from 3 times the two integer

i think i did my work wrong tho, I did 5x + 10 = 3x+3x+3-11 5x + 10 = 6x +3 -11 5x+10 = 6x -8 ??
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
x=-18
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
i'm sorry
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
my mistake
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay got it :) but 5-6 would be -x so wouldnt it be a positive?
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
lol it would be x=18 by your method
anonymous
  • anonymous
bc of the two negatives right? lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
nvm i figured it out
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
5x+10=6x-8 6x-5x=10+8 x=18
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
is it the correct answer huh ?
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
18 is the correct answer
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
no pls don't confuse me any more
anonymous
  • anonymous
wellll if you switched the sides wouldnt it be -10 + -8? idk .. lol thanks though
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
@glitterythings why are you getting confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
nvm i think im just confusing myself
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
we are no switching sides we are combining the same terms
anonymous
  • anonymous
got it :) sorrry
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
5x+10 = 6x -8 5x-6x=-10-8 -x=-18 x=18
sohailiftikhar
  • sohailiftikhar
lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
