Let's allow "x" to represent the first even integer and "x + 2" to represent the consecutive even integer:

3x + (x + 2) = 58 (your statement)

4x + 2 = 58 (collect terms)

4x + 2 - 2 = 58 - 2 (subtract 2 from both sides)

4x = 56 (collect terms)

4x/4 = 56/4 (divide by 4 on both sides to isolate the variable)

x = 14

x + 2 = 16

3x + (x + 2) = 58 (your statement)

4x + 2 = 58 (collect terms)

4x + 2 - 2 = 58 - 2 (subtract 2 from both sides)

4x = 56 (collect terms)

4x/4 = 56/4 (divide by 4 on both sides to isolate the variable)

x = 14

x + 2 = 16

**The two consecutive even integers you seek are 14 and 16.**
