If the first of two consectutive integers is divided by 4 and the second consecutive integer is divided by 2, the sum of quotients would be 5. What are the integers?
Please help me!!! :-)
The two numbers are consecutive, so we could call them and .
The first is being divided by 4, so we get , and the second is being divided by 2, so we get .
We are told the sum of these quotients is 5, so .
Can you solve this equation for ? Can you use this to determine what the two integers are?
No, it says the first OF two consecutive integers is divided by 4, i.e. , and the second OF two consecutive integers is divided by 2, i.e. .
The wording makes perfect sense and my answer to your question was very clear. If you are unable to follow then you will need one-on-one tuition, which is more than can be provided on this site. (I am a private tutor though, if you live in Melbourne Australia I can help you.)
