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
3 x + 6(x+1) = 24

The first step might me to rewrite it
9x + 6 = 24
Take it from there.
