What are two consecutive odd integers, such that six times the larger minus two times the smaller is 152?

6(x+2) - 2x = 152    (we'll see if this results in odd integers....if not we will modify the equation)

6x+12-2x

4x = 140

x=35

 

35    and 37

List equations:

6x-2(x-2)=152

6x-2x+4=152

4x=148

x=37

x-2=35

35, 37 are the numbers
