# How do you find a set of two consecutive integers whose sum is equal to the next integer immediately following them?

Aug 21, 2016

The numbers are $1$ and $2$.

#### Explanation:

Let the smallest number be $x$, the middle number be $x + 1$ and the larger number be $x + 2$.

Then, $x + x + 1 = x + 2$.

$2 x + 1 = x + 2$

$x = 1$

$\therefore$ The numbers are $1$ and $2$.

Hopefully this helps!
