# How do you add consecutive even numbers?

Well if you don't know what the numbers are then you can let x be an even number, then your consecutive numbers would be x, x+2, x+4,x+6 etc. so lets say that x is an even number and you are told that x and the three consecutive even numbers after it added together equals 48. then you would say: x + (x +2) + (x + 4) + (x + 6) = 48 combine like terms and you get: 4x + 12 = 48 subtract 12 from both sides 4x = 36 x = 9 and there you have it. Hope this helps :)

### What are four consecutive numbers that add up to 35?

There are no four consecutive whole numbers that add up to 35. The sum of two consecutive [whole] numbers is an even number plus an odd number which is an odd number. The sum of two consecutive numbers and the two next consecutive numbers is the sum of two odd numbers which is even, but 35 is odd, so no four consecutive whole numbers cannot add up to 35.

### What are two pairs of consecutive numbers that add up to 5280?

Although not specified as such, "consecutive" requires the numbers to be integers. Two pairs literally means four numbers but there are not four consecutive integers that add up to to 5280. 1318 + 1319 + 1320 + 1321 = 5278 and 1319 + 1320 + 1321 + 1322 = 5282. Four consecutive numbers must add up to an even number that is not a multiple of 4. If by two pairs, the question meant ONE…

### What are consecutive even or odd integers?

Consecutive even numbers are any even numbers which are separated by one (uneven) number... so that 6 and 8 are consecutive even numbers... as are 22, 24 and 26. Similarly, consecutive odd numbers are numbers which are separated by one (even) number... so that 11 and 13 are consecutive odd numbers... as are 31, 33 and 35.

### Why can't two consecutive whole numbers be prime?

In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers. For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime. In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers. For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers will always be even, and therefore, not a prime. In fact, they can. 2 and 3 are consecutive prime numbers. For larger numbers, one of two consecutive numbers…

### What are three consecutive even integers whose sum is negative one hundred and eighty-six?

method -- We need X numbers which are consecutive, so the middle number will be 1/ X of the total. Divide the sum of the numbers by the number of numbers ... in this case divide 186 by 3. The numbers are to be consecutive and even, so subtract 2 from the number go get one of the numbers and add 2 to the number to get the other number. You now have three…
