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?

  • Math -

    x+4 - 2x = x+2 - 24
    -2x = -26
    x = 13

    the three number are 13 , 15 , and 17


    check:

    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
