Find two consecutive integers whose sum is equal 129.

#10520

Let x and x + 1 (consecutive integers differ by 1) be the two numbers. Use the fact that their sum is equal to 129 to write the equation

x + (x + 1) = 129

x = 64

x = 64 and x + 1 = 65

We can see that the sum of the two numbers is 129.

Let’s call the first integer “x.” Since you’re looking for consecutive integers, the next integer would be “x + 1.” According to the problem, their sum is 129:

x + (x + 1) = 129

Combine the terms:

2x + 1 = 129

Now, subtract 1 from both sides:

2x = 128

Divide both sides by 2:

x = 64

So, the first integer is 64, and the next consecutive integer is 65. Their sum is indeed 129.
