2.)The sum of four consecutive odd
integers is -336. Set up an equation AND solve for all of the integers.
Two ways to approach this.
-336/4 = -84 making the 4 consecutive odd numbers -81, -83, -85 and -87.
x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) + (x + 6) = -336
I'll let you solve for the answer.
Let x be an odd integer.
Then x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) + (x + 6) = -336
==> 4x + 12 = -336
==> 4x = -348
==> x = -87
Then the four consecutive odd integers are:
==> x = -87
==> x + 2 = -85
==> x + 4 = -83
==> x + 6 = -81
is this right?
Yes. Did they add to -336? Are they consective odd integers?
Yes, you are correct angel.
If x=2/3 and y=3/4 then 10xy=60
