Consecutive numbers are **numbers that follow each other** in order from smallest to largest. **Consecutive numbers** have difference of 1 , between such ** ****numbers**.

In other words, we can say that consecutive number of any number is obtained by adding 1 to that number.

**Question 1**

Write the four consecutive numbers occurring just after 294.

**Explanation : –**

The next four consecutive numbers of 294 can be obtained by adding 1, 2, 3 and 4 to 294

that is,

294 + 1 = 295

294 + 2 = 296

294 + 3 = 297

294 + 4 = 298

Hence the four consecutive number occuring just after 294 are 295 , 296 , 297 and 298 respectively.

**Question 2**

Write the three consecutive numbers occurring just after 431.

**Explanation : –**

The next three consecutive number of 431 can be obtained by adding 1, 2 and 3 to 431

that is,

431 + 1 = 432

431 + 2 = 433

431 + 3 = 434

Hence the three consecutive number occurring just after 431 are 432, 433 and 434 respectively.
