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

    257 / 2 = 128.5

    128 + 129 = 257

    No two consecutive numbers add up to an even number.

    19 + 20 = ?
    45 + 46 = ?

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

  • Math -

    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
