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! Good Luck Studying ^-^
