х is the first number
(x + 1) is the second number
(x + 2) is the third number
(x + 3) is the fourth number

x + x+1 + x+2 + x+3 = 230
4x + 6 = 230
4x = 230 - 6
4x = 224
x = 224/4
x = 56  the first number 
56 + 1 = 57   the second number 
56 + 2 = 58 the third number 
56 + 3 = 59 the fourth number

Answer: 56, 57, 58, 59.
