Answer :

Let the two consecutive positive integers be x and x + 1

According to the given condition


x2 + (x + 1)2 = 613


x2 + x2 + 1 + 2x = 613


2x2 + 2x – 612 = 0


x2 + x - 306 = 0


x2 + 18x – 17x - 306 = 0


x(x + 18) - 17(x + 18) = 0


(x + 18)(x - 17) = 0


The roots of the equation are those value for which(x + 18)(x - 17) = 0


x = 17 or - 18


Hence the two positive integers are 17 and 18 or - 17 and - 18
