In Algebra II, we sometimes see consecutive number problems. Consecutive number problems may ask us to find a sum of integers or the specific integers themselves. To solve these problems, we set up a linear equation or a system of linear equations and then solve for a variable. These types of problems are often found on the SAT and ACT.
