I need a lot of help in this one.
it says find two consecutive positive integers such that the sum of their square is 85.
how would i do this one i have no clue i know what are positive integers.but i don't know how to figure this out.
Let n be a postive integer, then n+1 is the next integer.
sum the squares of those noumbers:
n^2 + n^2 + 2n +1=85
solve for n.
what is two consecutive positive integers square of 85
