The greater of to numbers is 1 more than twice the smaller. 3 times the greater number exceeds 5 times the smaller by 10. I just need the equation THANKS
y is greater number x is lesser number
y=2x + 1 (first statement)
Let the smaller number be x and greater be y Now y=2x+1 3y=5x+10
^^ those are the two equations!
Solve them! And you just said, you only need the equations!
Substitute the value of y from 1st equation in second equation!
