# Consecutive integer

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

## Consecutive even numbers

Consecutive even numbers are even numbers that follow each other. They have a difference of 2 between every two numbers.

If n is an even integer, then n, n+2, n+4 and n+6 will be consecutive even numbers.

For example - 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,18 etc.

## Consecutive odd numbers

Consecutive odd numbers are odd numbers that follow each other. Like consecutive odd numbers, 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 consecutive odd numbers.

Examples

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

−23, −21, −19, −17, −15, -13, -11
