What 2 numbers should be placed in the blanks below so that the difference between consecutive numbers
is the same? 17, __, __, 41 A.) 23, 29 B.) 24, 34 C.) 25, 33 D.) 26, 35 E.) 27, 31
You might want to use trial and error with the answers, or solve it mathematically.
Since there are 2 blanks, and essentially 3 sections between 17 and 41, find the difference between 17 and 41 and then split it 3 ways. 41  17 = 24 {found the distance between 17 and 41} 24 ÷ 3 = 8 {split 24 three ways} Therefore, there is a difference of 8 between the numbers. 17, 25, 33, 41 {the difference is 8 between consecutive numbers} C.) 25, 33 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
