Let the first whole number be $x$. Since the two whole numbers are consecutive, the second whole number is $(x+1)$. As the sum of the two numbers is $67$, we obtain: $x+(x+1)=67$ $x+x+1=67$ $2x+1=67$ $2x=67-1$ $2x=66$ $x=33$ Therefore, the first whole number is $33$ while the second whole number is: $33+1=34$.
