Question and answer
The sum of two numbers is 47. The smaller number is 15 less than the larger number. What are the numbers?
Let x = big number Let ( 47-x)=small number The smaller number (47 - x) is 15 less than the larger number x. This is written as (47- x) = x - 15. We now simply solve for x. Once we find x, we then can find the two numbers. [ 47 - x = x - 15 47+15= x+x 62= 2x x=62/2= 31 x= 31 The big number is 31. The smaller number is 47- 31 or 16 ]
