Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Think of all the numbers that add up to 70, then multiply the pairs untill you find one that = 1224 .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use intellegent guess. 40 times 30 is 1200. So the two numbers roughly between 30 and 40. To make the sum 70 and the last digit equal 4, we need the two end digits to be 4 and 6. Hence the best bet is 34,36. Checking the product of the two confirm our guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you want to solve this algebraically: \(x+y=70\) \(xy=1224\) \(x(70x)=1224\) \(x^2+70x1224=0\) Use quadratic formula to solve it for x.
