The    of consecutive integers equals

Find 2 consecutive integers with

a sum of 235

Setup relational equation

We need to find 2 integers, n and n + 1, who have a sum = 235
n + (n + 1) = 235

Grouping like terms, we get 2n + 1 = 235

Subtract 1 from each side:

2n + 1 - 1 = 235 - 1

Cancel the ±1 from each side and simplify:

2n + 1 - 1 = 235 - 1

2n = 234

Divide each side by 2:

2n
=
234
2

Cancel the 2's on the left side of the equation and simplify:

2n
2
=
  
234
2

First Answer:

n = 117

Determine the 2nd Integer:

Now, since we found our first integer, our 2nd integer is just one greater:

(n + 1) = 117 + 1

Second Answer:

(n + 1) = 118

Final Answers:

n = 117
(n + 1) = 118





What is the Answer?
n = 117
(n + 1) = 118
