-120 and -119

#### Explanation:

Let's create an equation for this problem!

We should have 3 parts in this equation for the 3 parts of the problem:

The **sum** of two **consecutive** integers is **-239**.

If the first integer is x, then the second consecutive integer must be x + 1. The sum of these two is -239. So our equation is

Combine like terms:

Subtract 1 from both sides:

Divide both sides by 2 to find x:

If the first integer (x) is -120, then the next integer (x + 1) should be

The two integers are -120 and -119.
