### I'm lost

I live on Sunset Boulevard, where there are 6 houses on my side of the block. The house numbers are consecutive even numbers. The sum of all 6 house numbers is 8790. You don't know which block I live on, and it's a long street, but I will tell you that I live in the lowest number on my side of the block. What's my address?

1. x + (x+2) + (x+4) + (x+6) + (x+8) + (x+10) = 8790

x = 1460

2. As sean and Abe pointed above, the house number is 1460.

The 6 house numbers are 1460, 1462, 1464, 1466, 1468, 1470. The lowest house number, as per the question, is the answer: 1460.
