As we know that the numbers are 2 consecutive even integers, we know that one number will be 2 larger than the other. We can use this to solve the problem with algebra:

Where x is the smaller number,

x + (x + 2) = 226

2x + 2 = 226

2x = 224

x = 112

Therefore the larger integer is 112 + 2 = 114
