x = first even integer
x + 2 = second even integer ← even integers increase by 2
x + x + 2 = 66 ← the sum of the two is 66
2x + 2 = 66 ← combined like terms
2x = 64 ← subtracted 2 from each side
x = 32 ← divided each side by 2
x + 2 = 34 ← substituted 32, in for x, into x + 2
32 and 34 are the two consecutive even integers
 Proof
