Video Series: How to Solve Consecutive Number Problems

PH Civil Service Review partners with the Sipnayan Youtube Channel in order to teach the basic concepts of mathematics easily. These tutorials are explained in mixed Tagalog and English, so viewers would be able to understand more. Below is one of the video series in the Sipnayan Youtube channel: a series of tutorials on how to solve consecutive number problems.

Part 1

The first video shown below discusses the definition of consecutive numbers. It also explains the difference of consecutive numbers, consecutive even numbers, and consecutive odd numbers. It discusses how to represent consecutive numbers algebraically and gives two sample problems.

Part 2 (click here to watch video), discusses in details two more examples. The first is four consecutive numbers with a sum of 70 and the third one is 3 consecutive numbers with a sum of 51.

Part 3 (click here to watch video) discusses two consecutive number problems describing their terms.

Aside from these videos, PH Civil Service Review has also a tutorial series on “The Solving Consecutive Number Problems Series” which discusses more examples in details. You can also subscribe to the Sipnayan Youtube Channel to be updated to the latest videos.

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.  Continue Reading
