5 Consecutive Numbers with an Increment of 5
5) What five consecutive numbers total 1,285, and with each following
number being 5 more than the one before it?
n + (n + 5) + (n + 10) + (n + 15) + (n + 20) = 1285
5n + 50 = 1285
5n = 1235
n = 247
Since n = "247," then plugging that into the "n" variable in the
terms above, we come up with the following:
247 (n)
252 (n + 5)
257 (n + 10)
262 (n + 15)
267 (n + 20)
