## How to Solve Consecutive Number Problems Part 1

This is the first of the Solving Consecutive Number Series, a series of post discussing word problems about consecutive numbers.

Consecutive numbers are numbers that follow each other in order. In number problems in Algebra, consecutive numbers usually have difference 1 or 2. Below are the types of consecutive numbers,

consecutive numbers – 5, 6, 7, 8, …

consecutive even numbers – 16, 18, 20, 22…

consecutive odd numbers – 3, 5, 7, 8, …

The symbol … means that the list may be continued.

Notice that consecutive numbers always increase by 1 in each term. If we make 5 as point of reference, then, we can write the numbers above as

5, 5 + 1, 5 + 2, 5 + 3.

That means that if our first number is x, then the list above can be written as

x, (x + 1), (x + 2), (x + 3)

and so on.  » Read more

## The Venn Diagram Problem Solving Tutorial Series

According to some readers who took the Civil Service Examination last April and October, some of the questions include Venn diagram problems, so I wrote a series on how to solve problems about it.
