The numbers are as follows: color(blue)(4,5

#### Explanation:

Let the the consecutive numbers be :

color(blue)((x) and (x+1)

As per the condition given:
$\textcolor{b l u e}{\left(x\right) + \left(x + 1\right)} = 9$

$2 x + 1 = 9$

$2 x = 8$

$x = 4$

color(blue)(x=4
So the numbers are as follows: color(blue)(4,5
