Objective: Students will be able to solve consecutive integers problems.

Consecutive Integers

Linear Problems

- Case one:
- Consecutive numbers like 4, 5, 6,7, …
- x, x + 1, x + 2, x + 3, …

- Consecutive numbers like 4, 5, 6,7, …
- Case Two:
- Consecutive odd numbers like –5, –3, –1, 1, 3, …
- x, x + 2, x + 4, x + 6, …

- Consecutive even numbers like –4, –2, 0, 2, 4, …
- x, x + 2, x + 4, x + 6, …

- Consecutive odd numbers like –5, –3, –1, 1, 3, …

- The sum of two consecutive even numbers is -14. What are the two numbers.

- Define the unknown.
- Let x = 1st consecutive number.
- Let x + 2 = 2nd consecutive number.

- Setup the Equation.
- (x) + (x + 2) = -14

- Solve the equation.
(x) + (x + 2) = -14

x + x + 2 = -14

2x + 2 = - 14

- 2 - 2

2x = -16

2 2

x = - 8

- Answer the question
x = –8

x + 2 =

- Check
–8 + (–6) = –14

Speed, Distance & Time

Speed, Distance, Time Calculations

The aim of this lesson is to be able to use the correct formulas to calculate speed, distance or time

Reminder: How to change minutes into a decimal

15 mins = 0•25 hour

So: 3 hours 15 mins = 3•25hours

30 mins = 0•5 hour

So: 7 hours 30 mins = 7•5hours

45 mins = 0•75 hour

So: 2 hours 45 mins = 2•75hours

A windsurfer travelled 28 km in 1 hour 45 mins.

Calculate his speed.

Speed =

1 hour 45 mins

= 16 km/h

Answer: His speed was 16 km / hour

A salesman travelled at an average speed of 50 km/h for 2 hours 30 mins. How far did he travel?

Distance =

Speed x Time

= 50 x 2•5

2 hour 30 mins

= 125 km

Answer: He travelled 125 km

A train travelled 555 miles at an average speed of 60 mph. How long did the journey take?

Time =

= 9•25 hours

= 9 hours 15 mins

Answer: It took 9 hours 15 minutes
