 Question 514778: what two whole numbers numbers in a row whose sum is 36 Answer by oberobic(2304)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x+y = 36 y = x+1 . 2x+1 = 36 2x = 35 x = 17.5, which is not a whole number . 17+18 = 35 18+19 = 37 . BUT, perhaps there are two consecutive even or odd numbers that total 36? . x + y = 36 y = x+2 . x +x+2 = 36 2x = 34 x = 17 x+2 = 19 . So 17 and 19 are two consecutive odd numbers that total 36. . Done.
