Consecutive integers are integers that follow each other in order. They have a difference of 1 between every two numbers. In a set of consecutive integers, the mean and the median are equal.

If n is an integer, then n, n+1, and n+2 would be consecutive integers.

Examples

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

−3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2 , 3 , 4

6, 7, 8, 9, 10

1004, 1005, 1006

Odd consecutive integers[change | change source]

Odd consecutive integers are odd integers that follow each other. They have a difference of 2 between every two numbers.

If n is an odd integer, then n, n+2, n+4, and n+6 will be odd consecutive integers.

the first number in the pattern is always the variable on its own or in this case, "n".

Examples

3, 5, 7, 9, 11, etc.

−23, −21, −19, −17, −15, -13, -11

Even consecutive integers[change | change source]

Even consecutive integers are even integers that follow each other. They have a difference of 2 between every two numbers.

If "n" is an even integer, then n, n+2, n+4 and n+6 will be even consecutive integers.

Examples

4, 6, 8, 10, 12

−2, 0, 2, 4, 6

−120, −118, −116, −114, -112
