# The sum of two consecutive even integers is 226. What is the larger number? A. 114 B. 116 C. 112 D. 118

Answer: First, assign a variable that you're looking for.

Let x = the larger number
Then x - 1 = the smaller number

The sum of x and x - 2 will equal to 226.

x + x - 1 = 226
2x - 1 = 226
2x = 228
x = 114

So, the smaller number is 112 and the larger number is 114.

A bank teller notices that an account was overdrawn and had a balance that can be represented by-324. The account holder then deposited 3 checks for \$150 each and made 4 withdrawals of \$20 each. The teller used the steps below to find the new balance for the account. Step 1- start: -\$324
Deposits: \$150 each
Withdrawals: -\$20 each

Step 2- -324+3(150)+4(-20)

Step 3- -324+450-80=46

Step 4- the account is overdrawn by \$46

In which step did the teller make the first error?

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4

Step 4 : the account is overdrawn by \$46

Step-by-step explanation:

Please see that when an account is in negative figure , we call it overdrawn. but when it is in positive figure we called is in credit.

Here we see from the calculation that the final balance available in the account of teller is \$46, hence the account is having positive balance . hence it is not overdrawn.

So the mistake is in last step.

step 4 it not overdrawn any more it postive 46 not negtive
