13 and 14

13 x 14 = 182

13 and 14. Also negative 13 and negative 14.

14*16 = 224

None. But, 14 is between the two odd integers 13 and 15.

13 x 14 = 182

You can solve this in two ways.1) Trial and error. That is, try multiplying two consecutive integers; if the product is too large, try smaller integers; if the product is too small, try larger consecutive integers. 2) Call the two consecutive integers "n" and "n+1", and solve the equation: n(n+1)=210

-13*-14 = 182

13 and 14. Also negative 13 and negative 14.

14*16 = 224

Call the smaller of the two consecutive integers n. Then, from the problem statement: n(n+2) = 168, or n2 + 2n - 168 = 0, or (n + 14)(n - 12) = 0, which is true when n = -14 or +12. Therefore, the two integers sought are 12 and 14.

None. But, 14 is between the two odd integers 13 and 15.

The integers are 13 and 14.

-15 and -14.

The numbers are 13 and 14.

Yeah, those two integers don't exist 12 x 13 is 156 - too low the very next integers or too high 13 x 14 is 182 - too high if it helps 12 x 14 is 168, but these are not consecutive
