Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the instructor shows how to solve consecutive integer problems with one variable, defining more than one number. The lesson provides three example problems, each with increasing difficulty, and shows the step-by-step process needed to solve them. The problems involve finding sets of even or odd integers, and require careful attention to detail, such as remembering to put parentheses around negative quantities and checking the solution by plugging in the numbers.

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.
