# Consecutive integer

ordered succession of integers, defined by a formula, recurrence, or property of its members

Consecutive numbers are numbers that follow each other in order. They have a difference of 1 between every two numbers. In a set of consecutive numbers,the mean and the median are Equal.

If n is a number, then the next numbers will be n+1 and n+2

Examples

Consecutive numbers that follow each other in order:

• 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
• -3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
• 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

## Odd consecutive numbers

Odd consecutive integers are odd integers that follow each other. They have a difference of 2 between every two numbers.

If n is an odd integer, then n, n+2, n+4 and n+6 will be odd consecutive integers. The first number in this pattern is the variable on its own or in this case, "n".

Examples

3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, etc.

−23, −21, −19, −17, −15, -13, -11

Even Consecutive Numbers

These are those numbers which are in continuous series in even manner. For example - 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,18 etc. In even consecutive numbers, odd numbers ( like 1,3,5,7,9 etc.) will not be included.
