The third number in the sequence 31, 32, 33, 34 is 33
let first number be the smallest number be x.
Consecutive numbers are those numbers that follow each other in order and they should have a difference of 1 between every two numbers.
Then, the four consecutive integers are x , (x+1), (x+2) , (x+3)
Given: the sum of 4 consecutive integers is 130.
From the given condition we have,
Like terms states that contain the same variables raised to the same power.
Combine like terms we get,
Subtract 6 from both the sides, we get
Simplify we get,
Divide both sides by 4;
On simplify we get, the value of x i.e,
the sequence we have, 31, 32, 33, 34,
therefore, the third number in the sequence is, 33.
