Find the smallest two consecutive even integers such that three times the smaller is at least 19 more than the sum of the two integers

Let x be the smallest number.
Let x + 2 be the other number (consecutive even integer)

Now to translate the rest;)
three times the smaller 3(x)
19 more -19
sum of the two integers - (x) +( x+2)

Pulling it together,
3x -19 = x + x +2
collect like terms
3x - 19 = 2x + 2
Put all the constants on one side by adding 19 to both sides.
3x - 19 +19= 2x + 2 + 19
3x = 2x +21
Subtract 2x from both sides to have all the x's on one side.
3x - 2x = 2x +21 - 2x
x = 21
The other number is 21 + 2, or 23
Check:three times the smaller = 3 x 21 = 63
sum of the two integers = 21 + 23 or 44
is 63 at least 19 more than 44

Gr 8 question

The two numbers are 9 and 27.

Suppose the two numbers are x and y, then,

x + y = 36 ---------1
x = 3y -------------2

Solving equation 1 and 2...

3y+y=36 => 4y=36 => y = 9
x + 9 = 36 => x = 27

Please rate and comment if my answer is right.
