Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

consecutive means the next even number

let take the width of the rectangular to = (2x)meters

we  multiply x by 2 to ensure that the width is an even number, where X is an integer and is positive.

The length of the rectangle will be = (2x + 2)meters


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
