Name 3 consecutive odd integers (X,X+2,X+4)
The difference between 2X and X+4 =(X+2)-24
Can you show HOW to solve?
x+4 - 2x = x+2 - 24
-2x = -26
x = 13
the three number are 13 , 15 , and 17
difference between 2x and x+4 is
x+4 - 2x
= 4-x = 4-13 = -9
but this is supposed to be x+2 - 24
= 13+2-24 = -9
my answer is correct
