They could be: 12*12 = 144 and 12+12 = 24

If you solve by trial and error you can start with the sum of two consecutive odd integers. 5+7=12 no 7+9=16 no 9+11=20 no 11+13=24 yes. Then put the 4 numbers you're looking for 9, 11, 13, 15. Or you can use algebra logic. x+x+2=24 2x+2=24 2x=22 x=11 Then 9,11,13,15

There are 22 integers between them.

The sum is greater than 24.

All of the [positive] whole-number factors of 24 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24. Their sum is 60.
