Answer

The two integers are 190 and 192.

Work Step by Step

Let one even integer be $\Longrightarrow$ x Since two consecutive integers have a difference of 2 between them, The second consecutive integer is x+2. Given: x + x+2 = 382. Subtracting 2 from both sides, 2x + 2 -2 = 382 - 2. Thus 2x = 380. Thus x = 190. Thus the two consecutive integers are x = 190 and x+2 = 190 + 2 = 192.
