Writing Negative consecutive integers [#permalink] New post 05 Oct 2011, 21:39
Hi guys !!

I have a question. If we have to write consecutive integers in algebraic form, it would be n, n+1, n+2....
But How we construct the negative algebraic form of consecutive integers ? would it be just to put -ve sign before the integers. i.e -(n) , -(n+1), - (n+2 ) ..... ?? or there is another way ?

Thank you !!

n, n+1, n+2....

Nothing says that n has to be positive. It could well be -10 and this sequence could be -10, -9, -8 etc
If you are looking at a particular question, put it up.
