## Answers ( No )

An integer is a whole number. Sum means to add and since they are consecutive, there is only a difference of 1 between them.

1) 21 + 23: not consecutive

2) 23+24= 47: has to be at least 46

3) 22+23= 45: has to be at least 46

4) 24+25= 49: has to be at least 46

So we have two possibilities: either #2 or #4. Find least possible pair of integers.

x= first integer

x+1= second integer

x + (x+1) >= 46

2x + 1 >=46

2x>=45

x>=22.5

Answer:

The first integer has to be greater than or equal to 22.5. Since integers are whole numbers, round up to the next whole number. The least possible integers are #2) 23 and 24.
