Q:
# find two constructive odd integers who sum is 36

Accepted Solution

A:

Two consecutive odd integers with a sum of 36 are 17 and 19.To find these integers, we start by using the definition of consecutive odd integers to represent our consecutive odd integers as n and n + 2. Now, we can set up an equation using the fact that the sum of these two integers is equal to 36.n + (n + 2) = 36Solving this equation for n will give us the first of our consecutive odd integers that sum to 36.n + (n + 2) = 36Simplify the left-hand side.2n + 2 = 36Subtract 2 from both sides of the equation.2n = 34Divide both sides of the equation by 2.n = 17We get that the first of the two consecutive odd integers is 17, so the second one is 17 + 2, or 19. Therefore, we find that two consecutive odd integers whose sum is 36 are 17 and 19.hTHE MAGIC OF COPY AND PASTE *bows*
