# What are 2 consecutive odd integers that equal 116?

Jan 22, 2016

$57 , 59$

#### Explanation:

Let $n$ be the lower of the two consecutive odd integers. Then the greater is $n + 2$ and

$n + \left(n + 2\right) = 116$

$\implies 2 n + 2 = 116$

$\implies 2 n = 114$

$\implies n = 57$

Thus the two consecutive odd integers are $57$ and $57 + 2 = 59$
