consec. integers --- like 10 and 11

the product is close t the square of eace

10^2 = 100 .... 11^2 = 121

product = 10x11 = 110 <<< close to and between the 2 squares ... so the integers will be 'close to' the sqyare root of the product

sq root 9702 = 98.4987 ... close integers are 98 and 99 ..... check with the product

98 X 99 = 9702 <<< so these are the 2 consec. integers .... 98 and 99
