Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, viewers learn how to solve consecutive integer problems where more than one number is defined. The lesson provides two examples, one for finding consecutive odd integers and the other for finding consecutive even integers. The instructor demonstrates how to define the variables for each problem and how to set up the equation to solve for the integers. The lesson also emphasizes the importance of checking the answer to ensure it makes sense in the context of the problem.

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 lesson does some example problems of solving consecutive even or odd integers given some other conditions. The idea of coming up with a formula for writing consecutive even or odd integers is shown, and all steps for writing, solving, and checking an equation are shown. A couple of very interesting problems are shown in this lesson.
