Find two consecutive odd integers such that 5 times the first integer is 12 more than 3 times the second. I've gotten this far but confused as to what the two intergers are.
Let n be first integer, so n+2 is the second odd integer.
5n -12= 3(n+2)
5n= 3n+6 + 12
compare this to your work tofind the error.
