Find two consecutive integers whose sum is -116.

**x = first consecutive integer**

x + 1 = second consecutive integer

x + 1 = second consecutive integer

x + x + 1 = -116 {added the two integers and set equal to -116}

2x + 1 = -116 {combined like terms}

2x = -117 {subtracted 1 from each side}

x = -117/2 {divided each side by 2}

Integers are the positive and negative whole numbers and zero. They do not include fractions.
