The sum of two consecutive number is 63. What are the numbers?
Consecutive numbers are those which follow each other, where a number is 1 more than the preceding number.
Define the numbers first.
Let the smaller number be
The larger number is
Their sum is 63, so we can write an equation:
If the smaller number is 31, the next number is 32.
Two consecutive numbers are
Let the two consecutive numbers be
Therefore given that
Hence two consecutive numbers are
Let the first number be
One number is
