To solve assign a variable that represents the first integer. Let it be x.

Since the two integers are consecutive, to get the next integer, add 1 to the first number.So the second integer is x + 1.

Then, add the two integers x and x+1. And, set it equal to the given sum which is 8.

`x + x + 1 = 8`

Then, use this equation to solve for x. So, combine like terms.

`2x+1=8`

`2x+1-1=8-1`

`2x=7`

`x=7/2`

`x=3.5`

Notice that the resulting value of x has a decimal point, not an integer.

Hence, there are no consecutive integers that has a sum equal to 8.
