Consecutive integers are integers that follow in sequence, each number being 1 more than the previous number. In these word problems, students will determine which consecutive integers have a given sum by applying a formula where n is an integer and consecutive integers are assigned variables (n = first integer; n + 1 = second integer; n + 2 = third integer, etc.). Students may work with only even or odd integers (n = first integer; n + 2 = second integer; n + 3 = third integer, etc.) or with negative integers. This set of worksheets contains step-by-step solutions to sample problems, both simple and more complex problems, a review, and a quiz. When finished with this set of worksheets, students will be able to solve word problems to identify consecutive integers which meet given specifications.
These worksheets explain how to solve word problems to find consecutive integers that meet given specifications. Sample problems are solved and practice problems are provided.
