I don't know if I should just start randomly plugging in numbers.

unfortunately, lots of folks do math that way, lol

let the first no. be x

then the next 4 consecutive numbers would be x+1, x+2, x+3, and x+4

so x + x+1 + x+2 + x+3 + x+4 = 1000

5x + 10 = 1000

5x = 990

x = 198

the no's are 198, 199, 200, 201, and 202

are they consecutive?

do they add up to 1000 ?
