I: 2n+2=24

Work Step by Step

First lets represent our first odd number with n. Then the next consecutive odd number will be n+2 because all consecutive odd number have a difference of 2 between each other. Now we add the two expressions: n+n+2=2n+2 Finally we equate this with 24 since that is the sum of the two consecutive odd numbers given in the problem: 2n+2=24 In order to find the first odd number, you simply solve for n.
