# What is the sum of two consecutive even integers that is 134?

Aug 28, 2016

The integers are  66 and68

#### Explanation:

Let the two consecutive integers be $2 n \mathmr{and} 2 n + 2$

Therefore we can write

$2 n + 2 n + 2 = 134$

or

$4 n = 134 - 2$

or

$4 n = 132$

or

$n = \frac{132}{4}$

or

$n = 33$

Therefore the integers are

$2 n = 2 \times 33 = 66 \mathmr{and} 2 n + 2 = 66 + 2 = 68$
