Hello there.
One number is 4 less than a second number. twice the second number is 16 less than 5 times the first. find the two numbers
Answer: Call the first number x.
First number is x.
Second number is x + 4.
This is the equation presented.
2(x + 4) = 5x - 16.
2x + 8 = 5x - 16.
16 + 8 = 5x - 2x
24 = 3x
x = 8.
x + 4 = 12.
The two numbers are 8 and 12.
Hope This Helps You!
