Examples

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

−3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2 , 3 , 4

6, 7, 8, 9, 10

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, 13, etc.
