Answer: 27, 29Step-by-step explanation:Consecutive integers are as follows:

First Integer: x

Second Integer: x + 1

Third Integer: x + 2

Fourth Integer: x + 3

The second and fourth = 58

x + 1 + x + 3 = 58

2x + 4 = 58

2x = 54

x = 27

First Integer: x = 27

Third Integer: x + 2 = 27 + 2 = 29

Answer:## 27, 29

Step-by-step explanation:n, n + 1, n + 2, n + 3 – four consecutive integers

The equation:

(n + 1) + (n + 3) = 58

n + 1 + n + 3 = 58

combine like terms(n + n) + (1 + 3) = 58

2n + 4 = 58

subtract 4 from both sides2n = 54

divide both sides by 2n = 27 – first

n + 1 = 28 – second

n + 2 = 29 – third

n + 3 = 30 – fourth
