The sum of two consecutive even integers is 118.
A. Define a variable for the smaller integer.
B. What must you add to an even integer to get the next greater even integer?
C. Write an expression for the second integer.
D. Write and solve an equation to find the two even integers.
small = s
add 2 to get the next even number
large = s+2
s + s+2 = 118
2s + 2 = 118
2s = 116
s = 58
the two even numbers are 58, 60
the sum of three consecutive integers is -30
