two consecutive integers such that the sum of 3 times the frist integer and 6 times second integer is 24. Expalin the variables that you used. If I could get help in solving this ASAP, I wiould really appreicate it?
Let the two consecutive integers be x and x =1. The verbal statements about the sum can be written

9x + 6 = 24
Take it from there.
