I would need one odd number and one even. 819 and 820 are as close as I can come. What am I missing?

**Damon**, Monday, February 18, 2008 at 4:23pmI can not do this problem as stated. I do not know what we are missing.

call first number n

second is (n+1)

n + (n+1) = 1640

2 n + 1 = 1640

2 n = 1639

n = 819 1/2 and 820 1/2- Math- consecutive intigers -

**Reiny**, Monday, February 18, 2008 at 4:32pmYou have good reason to be confused.

The information you give results in a contradiction as Damon showed algebraically.

"Consecutive" integers, pages are numbered in integers, have to be one even and one odd.

The sum of an even and an odd is always odd, so the question has a flaw in it.

Did you copy it correctly?

Unless this is some kind of weird trick question, such as since it is a math book its pages are numbered in decimals???- Math- consecutive intigers -
