They are (14, 15, 16).

Let x be one integerLet's say it is the bigger one.x-1 must be the other one since they are consecutive.x=2(x-1)+15x=2x+13-x=13x=-13 andx-1, the smaller one is -14Let's check.twice the smaller is -2815 more than -28 is -13 which is the bigger one.So the answer is -14 and -13

The sum of two consecutive integers can not be even unless both are even or both are odd.x+y=70y=4+2xx+(4+2x)=704+3x=703x=70-43x=66x=22y=70-22y=48The two numbers are 22 and 48. 22 is the smaller.

(x+2)=2x+20 x+2=2x+20 x-2x=20-2 -x=18 x=-18 proof -18+2=2*-18+20 -16=-36+20 -16=-16

Nice little problem !Call the consecutive integers ' x ' and ' x+1 '.The sum is [ x + 2(x+1) ] = Ax + 2x + 2 = A3x + 2 = ASubtract 2 from each side:3x = A - 2Divide each side by 3:x = (A-2)/3 and that's the smaller of the two integers.The larger one is (x+1) = (A+1)/3
