The product of two consecutive positive integers is 11 more than their sum. What the integers? Please help.

  • math - ,

    x(x + 1) = x + (x + 1) + 11

    Your move.

  • math - ,

    x^2 + x = 2x + 12
    x^2 -x -12 = 0
    (x-4)(x+3) = 0


    The only positive solution for x is
    x = 4. That is the smaller of the two numbers.
