Can it be x x +2 and x+4?

- 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...

- anonymous

So what I suggest is.. take the numbers as:
2x - 1 , 2x + 1 and 2x + 3

- sohailiftikhar

here you asked about consecutive integers not odd integers so take
x, x+1 , x+2 etc

- madhu.mukherjee.946

let the 3 integers be x,x+1,x+2

- sohailiftikhar

yes

- anonymous

ohhhh okay

- sohailiftikhar

got it ?same as before :)

- anonymous

yeah i do! : )

- midhun.madhu1987

ohh.... i misread the question...yup then what @sohailiftikhar said is the correct one

- sohailiftikhar

ok now do it your own :) if you want help tell after your work ok

- madhu.mukherjee.946

5(x+2)=3(x+x+1)-11

- madhu.mukherjee.946

@glitterythings whats your answer

- anonymous

im solving it rn, thank you.!

- sohailiftikhar

no problem ..

- anonymous

i distributed, so 5x + 10 = 3x +3x +3 -11
is that right?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

correct:)

- madhu.mukherjee.946

then?

- sohailiftikhar

no it's wrong

- sohailiftikhar

5x+10=11-3(x+x+1)

- anonymous

oh lol

- sohailiftikhar

now solve it ..

- madhu.mukherjee.946

no no its said 11 less than so it means 11 is subtracted from it

- madhu.mukherjee.946

@glitterythings do the way i told you

- sohailiftikhar

less means subtraction ok

- 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

rather 11 is subtracted from 3 times the two integer

- anonymous

i got 18

- anonymous

yay thanks!

- sohailiftikhar

lol

- anonymous

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

x=-18

- madhu.mukherjee.946

i'm sorry

- madhu.mukherjee.946

my mistake

- anonymous

okay got it :)
but 5-6 would be -x so wouldnt it be a positive?

- sohailiftikhar

lol it would be x=18 by your method

- anonymous

bc of the two negatives right? lol

- anonymous

nvm i figured it out

- sohailiftikhar

5x+10=6x-8
6x-5x=10+8
x=18

- sohailiftikhar

is it the correct answer huh ?

- madhu.mukherjee.946

18 is the correct answer

- madhu.mukherjee.946

no pls don't confuse me any more

- anonymous

wellll if you switched the sides wouldnt it be -10 + -8? idk .. lol thanks though

- madhu.mukherjee.946

@glitterythings why are you getting confused

- anonymous

nvm i think im just confusing myself

- sohailiftikhar

we are no switching sides we are combining the same terms

- anonymous

got it :) sorrry

- madhu.mukherjee.946

5x+10 = 6x -8
5x-6x=-10-8
-x=-18
x=18

- sohailiftikhar

lol

- anonymous

yeah thats what i did @madhu.mukherjee.946

- madhu.mukherjee.946

thats correct
