Let the smaller integer be , then the consecutive integer is . The sum of the squares of these numbers is 481, which leads us to the equation .
Aaaalright, apparently I'm supposed to solve this using the quadratic formula (ps: you dont have to run through the steps of the formula with me, i'm good with that part)
Here is the word problem: The sum of the squares of two consecutive numbers is 481. Find the integers.
How do I solve this?
