If two consecutive numbers add up to 86 then we can set up an equation like this:

x=the first number

So it makes sense that

x+2=the second number (since the numbers are consecutive)

And you know the sum of the two is 86. So the resulting equation is

(x) + (x+2) = 86

=>

2x + 2 = 86

2x = 84

x = 42

So the two numbers are 42 and 44.
