Who is asking:
I was wondering if there was a proper way to write the solution to
a problem requiring consecutive integers? Is it okay to write the solution
or must it be written as 1,2,3,4,5?
It is certainly more conventional to write 1,2,3,4,5 than 5,4,3,2,1
but I wouldn't penalize a student who wrote them from largest to smallest.
