## xokatexo 3 years ago The greater of to numbers is 1 more than twice the smaller. 3 times the greater number exceeds 5 times the smaller by 10.

1. lgbasallote

let the greater number be x, and the smaller number be y the greater of to numbers is 1 more than twice the smaller so x = 2y + 1 3 times the greater number exceeds 5 times the smaller by 10 3x = 5y + 10 does that help?

Let x represent the smaller number Let y represent the....damn basa damn

4. xokatexo

so you add x= 2y + 1 and 3x = 5y + 10

5. lgbasallote

no...you use elimination

6. lgbasallote

or substitution

7. trackzz

no, you perform the elimination or substitution process in which you'll solve for one variable. Then substitute whatever you solved for to get the unknown. Making the equation is all you need to get the answer.
