There are no two consecutive even integers, consecutive odd integers, or consecutive integers that satisfy that relationship.

The smaller integer is 6, the larger integer is 32

44 & 45

Let the smaller integer be x, then then larger integer is x + 2, and: 3x + (x + 2) = 58 → 4x = 56 → x = 14 → The two integers are 14 and 16.

Let x = 1st integer, since consecutive even integer differs by 2 then the 2nd integer = x + 2. So we have, x + 4(x + 2) = 48 x + 4x + 8 = 48 5x = 40 x = 8 (1st integer) Thus, the integers are 8 and 10. Check.

114.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) = 2262x + 2 = 2262x = 224x = 112Therefore the larger integer is 112 + 2 = 114

x > 16

3*(x+1) - x = 7 So 3x + 3 - x = 7 then 2x = 4 or x = 2 So the two integers are 2 and 3

No.A positive integer is always larger than a negative integer. In the case of two negative integers, the integer with the larger absolute value is actually smaller.
