The sum of two consecutive odd integers is 16. What is their sum?
Do you mean, what are the two terms?
Then they are 7 and 9
Two find the two terms from a sum of two consecutive odd integers
Let the first term be, n
Then the next consecutive odd number is. n + 2
So the two terms sum to n + n +2 = 16
so 2n + 2 =16
Subtract 2 from both sides
2n = 14
Divide both sides by 2
n = 7 which is the first term
and n + 2 = 7 +2 = 9 is the second term
