Answer:

See below...

Explanation:

Let #n# be the number.

#therefore# consecutive number is #n+1#

Forming an equation (sum means#+#)

#n+n+1=-59#

Simplify and solve for #n#:
#2n+1=-59#
#2n=-60#
#n=-30#

Now we know #n# we know that #n+1 = -30+1 = -29#

#therefore# the two consecutive numbers are #-30# and #-29#

Check: #-30 + (-29) = -59#
