The sum of 4 consecutive odd integers is -104. Find the integers with x for unknown numbers.

  • math -

    x = 1st odd integer
    x + 2 = 2nd odd integer
    x + 4 = 3rd odd integer
    x + 6 = 4th odd integer

    x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6 = -104
    4x + 12 = -104
    4x = -116
    x = -29

    -29, -27, -25, -23
