When the smaller of two consecutive integers is added to two times the larger , the result is 17. find the integers

smaller integer = x

larger = x+1

x+2(x+1)= 17

x+2x+2=17

3x=15

X=5

Larger=5+1=6

I am supposed to answer with what the 2 integers are in the problem that answer the question.

one is 5 and the other one is 6
