The greater of to numbers is 1 more than twice the smaller. 3 times the greater number exceeds 5 times the smaller by 10.
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
yeupp just follow that attempts were made.
so you add x= 2y + 1 and 3x = 5y + 10
no...you use elimination
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.
i got it thanks guys! IDK WHO TO MEDAL!
