Homework Help: Math

Posted by Jamie on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at 6:11pm.

For two consecutive integers, the sum of the smaller and twice the larger is 38. What are the integers?

Plz explain. Thanks

2(a+b)=38

Therefore:

a+b+(2(a+b)=38
a+b+2a+2b=38
3a+3b=38
3(a+b)=38

I got as far a here. I dont know if this helps. My last stop may be worng. This might help?

r u kidding me?this is like the easiest math ever..38 divide by 2 is 19 so a+b equals 19..
