since there are 5 numbers you have to add 1+2+3+4 to get 10.then you do 260/5 to get your first number. add 1 to that first number and the answer is 53

Your consecutive numbers are 52, 53, 54, 55, and 56. I found an easy way to determine this; Divide 270 by 5 to get close to the consecutive numbers, since they are almost (number) x 5. 52 + 53 = 105, 105 + 54 = 159 159 + 55 = 214 214 + 56 = 270. Hope this helps!
