Let the smaller integer be x. The larger one is x + 2. Can you set up an equation now?

OpenStudy (mathstudent55):

Since one integer is x and the other one is x + 2, and you want to represent their sum, write x + (x + 2) The sum of the two integers is -318, so write the equation: x + (x + 2) = -318 Now solve for x.
