The larger of two consecutive integers is 10 more than 4 times the smaller. Find the integers.

  • algebra -

    1st integer ---> x
    next consecutive integer ---> x+1

    x+1 = 4x + 10
    -3x = 9
    x = -3

    the integers are -3 and -2

    check:
    larger = -2
    4 times the smaller = -12
    yes. -2 is 10 more than -12
