Question 89

The sum of two consecutive multiples of 2 is 18. Find the numbers. 


Solution

Let the two consecutive multiples of 2 be 2x and 2x+2.
According to the question,
2x + 2x + 2 = 18
4x+2=184x=182      [transposing 2 to RHS]4x=164x4=164      [dividing both sides by 2]x=4
Hence, the required numbers are 2x = 2×4=8 and 2x+2 = 2×4+2=10.
