algebra integer problems

Hi!
i have this problem, I'm stuck on.
it says find 2 consecutive multiples of 9 whose sum is 153.
I started of my saying the 1st number is 9x and the 2nd is 9x+9.
I continued on to get, 9x+(9x+9)=153 and solved it.
I got an irrelevant answer: 9.
I was wondering what I had done wrong.
thank you.

It is right, your x is 9
so the integers are 9*9 and 9*9+9, or
81 and 72 
whoops... hehe sorry.
I forgot about the "pluging in"
:D thanks for the help
