The sum of two consecutive integers is -15. what is the product of the two integers?
x + x+1 =-15
2x = -16
x = -8
so the two numbers are -8 and -7
their product = 56
how did you figure out all of that? how did you get -16? and -8?
As you can see in my post , I solved the equation that I formed from the English sentences.
