 Word Problems: Numbers, consecutive odd/even, digits Solvers Lessons Answers archive Quiz In Depth

Welcome to the number word problems section! The dreaded problem:
``The sum of an integer number and the next number is 3. Find the number.''

Sounds familiar?

Word problems with consecutive numbers and word problems with digits usually are the first word problems that teachers give to their algebra students. This is so, because consecutive number problems are the easiest word problems. If you find them difficult, you need to work on them now, before word problems get even more complicated!

The point of almost any school word problem is to make you write an equation. It is easy to do, once you understand the basics.

I wrote a special sum of consecutive numbers solver, and a companion lesson that can solve any problem with a sum of consecutive numbers. Try it out, it will really explain how these problems are done.

Another popular (among teachers, that is) number word problem involves word problems with digits. I wrote a lesson about those problems, to hopefully make it easier to solve them.
