## Comment on

7 Consecutive Integers## Incase we take the numbers as

## That's correct.

That's correct.

If the question reads "consecutive integers," then it means successive integers (e.g., 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,...)

If the test-maker wants us to consider ODD or EVEN integers only, then that will be clearly stated in the question.

Cheers,

## In fact, the ETS writers

## It's unlikely the test-makers

It's unlikely the test-makers will add the text you're hoping for.

Just know that if/when you see "CONSECUTIVE INTEGERS" on the GRE, this refers to integers that have a difference of 1 (e.g., 5, 6, 7, 8, ...)

In other words, if a question doesn't mention EVEN or ODD, don't read EVEN/ODD into the question.

Also keep in mind that ODDs and EVENs aren't the only integers that can be considered consecutive. For example, a question might mention "CONSECUTIVE multiples of 5", or "CONSECUTIVE prime numbers"

As you can imagine, it would be difficult to write a proviso that rules out every possible type of CONSECUTIVE.

## Thank you :)

## I agree with the previous

## If the test-makers want you

If the test-makers want you to consider consecutive integers that are ODD or EVEN, they will definitely state state so. If the test-makers I want you to consider integers that differ by 1 (e.g., 3, 4, 5, 6...), they will just write "consecutive integers"

Here's an official question with "consecutive integers": https://greprepclub.com/forum/three-consecutive-integers-have-a-sum-of-1...

Here's an official question with "consecutive ODD integers": https://greprepclub.com/forum/r-s-and-t-are-three-consecutive-odd-intege...

Without these guidelines, a question featuring "consecutive integers" would look like this:

Three consecutive integers have a sum of −84. Please note that the 3 consecutive integers are:

- not consecutive ODD integers

- not consecutive EVEN integers

- not consecutive PRIME numbers

- not consecutive MULTIPLES of 5

- not consecutive MULTIPLES of 3

- not consecutive MULTIPLES of 7
