# The sum of two consecutive integers is −13. What are the numbers?

Subtract 1 from both sides

Divide both sides by 2

Let ( x ) represent the smaller integer. Then, the next consecutive integer would be ( x + 1 ). Since their sum is -13, we can set up the equation:

[ x + (x + 1) = -13 ]

Solving for ( x ):

[ 2x + 1 = -13 ] [ 2x = -14 ] [ x = -7 ]

So, the two consecutive integers are -7 and -6.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
