I just googled 'what is a consecutive number'. I kind of understand what it means, but I need to know what two consecutive numbers add to 257.
Hope you can help me!!!
Thanks
Mason

Ms. Sue,
257 / 2 = 128.5
128 + 129 = 257

Mason,
Ok, so if the number was even, would you do the same thing?

Ms. Sue,
No two consecutive numbers add up to an even number.
19 + 20 = ?
45 + 46 = ?

Mason,
Ok. So there can't be a consecutive number "set" when the number is a even number?

Math 
Ms. Sue,
You could have a three consecutive number set with an even number.
19 + 20 + 21 = 60
Or you could have three consecutive even numbers that add up to an even number.
18 + 20 + 22 = 60

Mason,
