The product of two consectuve even numbers is 360. Find the numbers.

I tried this:
x+(x+2)=360
2x+2=360
x=179, which would mean the numbers are 179 and 181, but those are not even numbers...

How am I supposed to solve this?

the statement said the "product of" which means you're suppose to multiply the consecutive even numbers!

x(x+2)=360

Small mistakes! Thank you so much (:
