Question and answer
The sum of two numbers is 49. The larger number is 5 more than the smallest number.What are the numbers?
Let x and y be the two numbers. We were given: x + y = 49, y = x + 5. institute y in the first equation: x + (x + 5) = 49, 2x = 49 - 5 = 44, x = 44/2 = 22, y= 22 + 5 = 27. The two numbers are 22 and 27 respectively.
