Nov 7, 2015

$x + 2 \left(x + 2\right)$

#### Explanation:

Let $x$ be any even integer
Let $y$ be the next even integer

What is the difference between any two consecutive integers? 2.

$\implies y = x + 2$

Hence the sum of an even integer and 2 time the next even integer is

$x + 2 \left(x + 2\right)$
