    xAnswer:

    -10   -8   -6   -4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The numbers are  

    first =x

    second= x+2

    third=x+4

    4th= x+6

    2(x + (x+4)) = 3(x+6)-20

    4x+8 = 3x+18–20

    4x-3x=18–20–8

    x=-10

    So the numbers are       -10,           -8,              -6,            -4

                                           first           2nd          3rd             4th

               Check:

             2( -10-6)  = 3(-4) -20

                2(-16) =  -12-20

    -32 = -32
