I'm in algebra and this problem was under the lesson Factoring to Solve Quadratic Equations. The problem is the following:
The product of two consecutive numbers is 14 less than 10 times the smaller number. Find each number.
I've come up with $x$ and $10x-14$. I know that there should be two variables, but that's all I could come up with as far as an expression goes. If anyone can give me a better expression or teach me how to solve this it'd be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
