    Stop spamming, I already answered you.

  • math - ,

    let the first integer be x
    then the next even integer is x+2

    x(x+2) = 224
    x^2 + 2x - 224 = 0
    (x-14)(x+16) = 0
    x=14 or x = -16

    if x=12, then x+2 = 16
    if x = -16 , then x+2 = -14

    the two integers are 14 and 16 or -14 and -16

  • math - ,

    <<<if x=12, then x+2 = 16>>>>
    You mean if x=14, then x+2=16
