    I only got the 1st one. And even that I'm not sure about.

    (I just guessed and checked)

    (G x 9)-8 = G
    (1 x 9)-8 = G
    9-8= 1

    Square root of 1 is 1.

    I will do this. Don't worry.

    So the first equation will be
    (9x)-8=x^2
    We get this since Nine times a # is 9x, eight less than that is 9x-8.
    To solve this, you have to first get common terms. So...
    We can factor it like a polynomial
    -X^2+9X-8=0
    From there we can factor the equation...
    But the solutions are extraneous, It cannot be factored. (Since you can get -8 from two factors of 9).
    The best possible method now is to graph the equation above and find the x-intercepts
    when you graph X^2-9X+8 (I multiplied the whole equation by -1 so X^2 wouldn't be negative).
    You get two intersections.. one at -10, and one at 1.
    CHECK to make sure the solutions are right.
    100-90+8 DOES NOT WORK
    but
    1-9+8 DOES work.

    Is this what your teacher wanted you to do?

    consecutive odd integers are
    7,9,11 (for example).
    So what we want to know is which consecutive odd integers ( 3 of them) equal 46.
    We know we only need 3 integers since in the question it says. Square of THIRD, decreased by FIRST.
    Basically all we have to do is find a # (The one we are squaring... the third #)LESS THAN 9, and the same # must be greater than 5. Since 5^2 is 25, which isn't greater than 46..
    So the only ODD # we are stuck with is 7 (greatest number).
    So the consecutive odds are 3,5,7
    7^2 =49
    49-3=46
    THERE YOU GO

    Thanks, bro, but the 2nd problem I'm not sure....

    I start out like this:
    x
    x+2
    x+4

    with those 3 terms representing the three consecutive odd integers..but after that I just don't know how to set up the problem at all...any idea?

    Look at Izzy's post. I think he did what you started out to do.
