The sum of 2 consecutive integers is equal to their difference.

Let the two consecutive numbers be x and x+1
translating "The sum of 2 consecutive integers is equal to their difference" > x + x+1 = x+1  x
I trust you to solve for x 
x + x + 1 = x + 1  x
x + x + x + 1 = x + 1 x + x
= x + 1 = x + 1 = 2x
x = 1 = 1 = x + 1 1  2x
x = x = 2x
3 = 3  2 * 3 = [3] 
x + x + 1 = x + 1 = x
x + x + x + 1 = x + 1  x + x
3x + 1 = x + 1
x + 3x + 1 = x + x + 1
2x + 1
