    2 consecutive integers at least 46: \[x + (x+1) \ge 46\] solve for x

    \[2x \ge 45\]\[x \ge 22.5\] so the smaller integer is greater than 22.5 and the second one is greater than 23.5. only one of the four options works

    actually 2 options work. you must pick the one with the smallest integers
