consecutive even integers are integers like: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 they are whole numbers that are even that are right next to each other let x be the first integer the next consecutive even integer is x+2 add the two up to get x+(x+2) x+x+2 2x+2 then set this equal to 234 to get 2x+2 = 234 now solve for x
