The sum of two consecutive integers is 49. Find the integers.
x = first consecutive integer
x + 1 = second consecutive integer x + x + 1 = 49 {sum of two consecutive integers is 49} 2x + 1 = 49 {combined like terms} 2x = 50 {subtracted 1 from each side} x = 25 {divided each side by 2} x + 1 = 24 {substituted 25, in for x, into x + 1} 25 and 24 are the two consecutive integers Ask the House
