    answer : 4407,4408

    because 8815/2 = 4407.5 so you take away the .5 to find one number and you add .5 for the other

    Answer:

    4407 and 4408

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1. Call one of the numbers x, and the other x + 1 (because a consecutive number is one that follows another).

    2. Equal the sum of those two numbers to 8815, solve for x.

    x + x + 1 = 8815

    Combine like terms.

    2x + 1 = 8815

    Subtract 1 from both sides.

    2x = 8814

    Divide both sides by 2

    x = 4407

    3. If x = 4407, then x + 1 = 4408.
