The sum of two consecutive integers is 15. what is the product of the two integers?

x + x+1 =15
2x = 16
x = 8
so the two numbers are 8 and 7
their product = 56 
how did you figure out all of that? how did you get 16? and 8?

As you can see in my post , I solved the equation that I formed from the English sentences.
