The two consecutive integers are $53$ and $54$

Explanation:

Let's say $x$ is the first number, the number that comes after $x$ is certainly $x + 1$ (definition of consecutive numbers)

$\left(x\right) + \left(x + 1\right) = 107$

$2 x = 106$

$x = 53$

So,

$x + 1 = 53 + 1 = 54$

You can check it :

$53 + 54 = 107$

I hope you finally got it! Good luck :)
