  • -3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
  • 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

Consecutive even numbers[change | change source]

Consecutive even numbers are even numbers 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 consecutive even numbers.

For example - 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,18 etc.

Consecutive odd numbers[change | change source]

Consecutive odd numbers are odd numbers that follow each other. Like consecutive odd numbers, 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 consecutive odd numbers.

Examples

3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, etc.

−23, −21, −19, −17, −15, -13, -11
