Consecutive Numbers Question 2013-08-11
From Lucy:
Hello,
I have a question about consecutive numbers. So lets say a question tells you to find what three consecutive numbers are that add up to a certain number. To calculate this, would you use 2x+1, 2x+3, 2x+5 or just x, x+2, x+4.
Also, the same question for even numbers. Would you use:
2x, 2x+2, 2x+4 or just x, x+2, x+4.
My math book is confusing because it uses the first strategy(the 2x+) in some situations and the second strategy(x+) in other situations. Thus, can you provide me an explanation of why you would use the strategy that is correct?
Specifically, my book answered this question: If n is the first of five consecutive odd numbers, what is their average, using n,n+2.=5n+20 and average is n+4(this is the answer),.
For the question: the sum of 4 consecutive odd integers must be:
Divisible by 8 but not necessarily 16(this is the answer), it used the strategy 2k+1, 2k+3=8k+16.

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question.
