Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Madi, a student:

I'm doing my homework, and there are questions on Consecutive Positive Integers. I was just wondering, what is a consecutive integer?
Or to be more specific, what is a consecutive POSITIVE integer?


The word consecutive means following in order, without interruption or successive. Hence 7 and 8 are successive positive integers but 7 and 9 are not successive.
