    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?

    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.
