there are 8 consecutive integers that add up to 31. Only two of the integers are equal. what is the greatest number for any one integer?

I assume that you are saying that of the 8 integers, only one is repeated.

If you include 8 as an integer, the sum will be greater than 31, so the greatest value would be 7. From this, you can figure which integer is repeated. (This is assuming that you are not using 0 as an integer.)

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
