Question #3f034

Jan 13, 2017

There is no solution to this problem.

Explanation:

$n + n + 2 + n + 4 + n + 6 = 46$

$4 n + 12 = 46$

$4 n + 12 - 12 = 46 - 12$

$4 n + 0 = 34$

$4 n = 34$

$\left(4 n\right) 4 = \frac{34}{4}$

$n = 8.5$

Because $n$ does not equal an integer there is no solution to this problem.
