Lesson Summary:

This lesson focuses on solving word problems involving consecutive integers. The instructor explains how to define consecutive integers using variables, and walks through examples of two and three consecutive integers. The lesson includes two problem-solving examples, one involving three consecutive integers and another involving two consecutive integers, and briefly introduces the concept of consecutive even and odd integers.

Lesson Description:

Shows how to solve a word problem with consecutive integers. This is solved with one variable, but more than one number is defined.

    This video series tackles a very common Algebra problem of finding consecutive integers given another condition. Two different types are shown in this video -- finding 3 integers that add up to a given value, and finding 2 integers where you are given the relationship between the two numbers. All steps are shown and explained in this very complete video tutorial.
