Let one no. be x then the other will definitelty be x+1

Now according to question x + x + 1 = 17

or, 2x = 17-1

or, x = 16/2

or, x = 8

Therefore one no is x or 8 and the other is x+1 or 8+1 or 9...

Thus solved

Let the two consecutive numbers be x and x + 1

so given x + x +1 = 17

2x = 16

x = 8

and x +1 = 9

so the consecutive numbers whose sum is 17 are 8 and 9

so given x + x +1 = 17

2x = 16

x = 8

and x +1 = 9

so the consecutive numbers whose sum is 17 are 8 and 9
