# The sum of two consecutive integers is 47, how do you find the two numbers?

Feb 2, 2016

I found $23 \mathmr{and} 24$

#### Explanation:

Let us call our integers:
$n$
and
$n + 1$
our condition is such that:
$n + \left(n + 1\right) = 47$
solve for $n$:
$2 n = 47 - 1$
$n = \frac{46}{2} = 23$
so that our integers will be:
$23 \mathmr{and} 24$
