    Consecutive integers means two numbers that are in line.

    example:

    {1,2}

    {2,3}

    {13,14}

    So find two consecutive integers that when added together, equal 11.

    Let the first number be x, then the next integer would be x+1

    so

    x+(x+1)=11

    2x+1=11

    2x=10

    x=\frac{10}{2}

    x=5

    so the numbers are

    {5,6}
