### 6 Questions

Q1.
Which of the following could represent 3 consecutive integers?
n, 2n, 3n
n, n+3, n+6
None of the above,
Q2.
I pick two consecutive integers. I square the bigger one and then subtract 4 of the smaller one. Which example could be my calculation?
(4 x 3)- 3²
(4 x 3)- 4²
3² - (4 x 3)
Correct answer: 4² - (4 x 3)
Q3.
I pick two consecutive integers. I square the bigger one and then subtract 4 of the smaller one. Write out some examples of these. What do you notice about the answers?
The answer is always a cube number.
The answer is always bigger than both of the original numbers.
Correct answer: The answer is always the square of one less than one of the original numbers.
The answer is always the square of one of the original numbers.
Q4.
I pick two consecutive integers. I square the bigger one and then subtract 4 of the smaller one. Which example could be an algebraic representation of this situation?
4(n+1)- n²
4n- (n+1)²
n² - 4(n+1)
Q5.
I pick two consecutive integers. I square the bigger one and then subtract 4 of the smaller one. Zaki writes a different algebraic expression to me but is still correct. Which one could he have written?
(n-1)² - 4(n+1)
(n-1)² - 4n
4n- (n-1)²
