## What are Consecutive Numbers ?

What are Consecutive Numbers ?  This question often comes to the mind of Maths students in early classes.  Consecutive numbers are numbers,  that follow each other , in the order of smallest to largest.

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

### Consecutive numbers Examples

Write the three consecutive numbers of the following numbers:

#### Example 1

25367

Explanation : –

The next three consecutive number of 25367 can be obtained by adding 1, 2 and 3 to 25367
that is,
25367 + 1 = 25368
25367 + 2 = 25369
25367 + 3 = 25370

Hence the three consecutive number occurring just after 25367 are 25368, 25369 and 25370 respectively.

#### Example 2

36135

Explanation:-

The next three consecutive number of 36135 can be obtained by adding 1, 2 and 3 to 36135
that is,
36135 + 1 = 36136
36135 + 2 = 36137
36135 + 3 = 36138

Hence the three consecutive number occuring just after 36135 are 36136 , 36137 and 36138 respectively.

#### Example 3

46903

Explanation:-

The next three consecutive number of 46903 can be obtained by adding 1, 2 and 3 to 46903
that is,
46903 + 1 = 46904
46903 + 2 = 46905
46903 + 3 = 46906

Hence the three consecutive number occuring just after 46903 are 46904 , 46905 and 46906 respectively.

#### Example 4

57671

Explanation:-

The next three consecutive number of 57671 can be obtained by adding 1, 2 and 3 to 57671
that is,
57671 + 1 = 57672
57671 + 2 = 57673
57671 + 3 = 57674

Hence the three consecutive number occuring just after 57671 are 57672 , 57673 and 57674 respectively.

#### Example 5

68439

Explanation:-

The next three consecutive number of 68439 can be obtained by adding 1, 2 and 3 to 68439
that is,
68439 + 1 = 68440
68439 + 2 = 68441
68439 + 3 = 68442

Hence the three consecutive number occuring just after 68439 are 68440 , 68441 and 68442 respectively.
