The problem asks for consecutive intergers. 

 

10 + 11 = 21

 

The largest posible number of positve, consecutive intergers must start with 1, since it is the smallest positive integer.

 

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 21

 

This is the largest amount of consecutive integers. 

 

6 is your answer. 

 

I hope this helped,

 

Gavin.
