Jul 3, 2015

The numbers are: color(green)(28, 30

#### Explanation:

The two consecutive even integers can be written as:

color(green)((x) and (x+2)

As per the conditions given:

$\left(x\right) + \left(x + 2\right) = 58$

$2 x = 56$

color(green)(x=28

The numbers are: $x , x + 2$

= color(green)(28, 30
