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 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?
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.)
