    Easy! Divide 76 in half, that gives you 38. So, add 37 and 39 to get 76. There are your two consecutive odd integers.

    I think the equation would be something like x+y= 76.... just dont know how you would show that they are consecutive....

    X+Y=76. (x+1)+(y-1)=76 to be more accurate. My BF is a college Algebra tutor.

    Your equations does resolve itself correctly. X + 1 + X - 1 = 76 --> 2X = 76 ----> X = 38 which is not the answer you are looking for.

    I think you'd need to do .... X + (X + 2) = 76 ----> 2X = 74 ----> X = 37 and X + 2 = 39

    I think I got that right.
