The product of two consecutive natural numbers is 46 less than the product of the other two consecutive natural numbers in a row. Identify unknown numbers.

Correct answer:

a =  10
b =  11

Step-by-step explanation:

a(a+1) + 46 = (a+2)(a+3) 4a = 40 a=40/4=10
b=a+1=10+1=11 c=b+1=11+1=12 d=c+1=12+1=13  x=a b=10 11=110 y=c d=12 13=156 q=yx=156110=46
