    So, let's define 2 consecutive odd integers:

    3 and 5

    5 and 7

    7 and 9

    9 and 11

    So, our integers would be written as "x" and "x+2".

    Our solution:

    x+62 = 5 (x+2)

    x+62 = 5x + 10

    x - 5x = 10 - 62

    -4x = - 52

    x = - 52/-4

    x = 13

    So our integers are 13 and 15.
