This video series tackles a very common Algebra problem of finding consecutive integers given another condition. Two different types are shown in this video -- finding 3 integers that add up to a given value, and finding 2 integers where you are given the relationship between the two numbers. All steps are shown and explained in this very complete video tutorial.
