the product of two consecutive positive even integers is 14 more than their sum .set up an equation that can be used to find the two numbers and solve it

(2k)(2k+2) = 2k + 2k+2 + 14

I used 2k, because we need to be sure that the numbers are even. We might have used

x(x+2) = x + x+2 + 14

but it might turn out that x is odd.
