We need to find 2 integers, n and n + 1, who have a sum = 27 n + (n + 1) = 27

Grouping like terms, we get 2n + 1 = 27

Subtract 1 from each side:

2n + 1 - 1 = 27 - 1

Cancel the ±1 from each side and simplify:

2n + 1 - 1 = 27 - 1 2n = 26

Divide each side by 2:

2n

2

=

26

2

Cancel the 2's on the left side of the equation and simplify:

2n

2

=

26

2

n = 13

Determine the 2nd Integer:

Now, since we found our first integer, our 2nd integer is just one greater: (n + 1) = 13 + 1

(n + 1) = 14

Since 13 and 14 are both consecutive integers and their sum is 27, we have our answer.
