i did x= the smaller
2x+4= the larger

Okay. Then x is the smaller, and 2x+4 is the larger.

Are you learning systems of equations? or just one variable?

we learned system of equations last year

okay so ill use x and y thankss

We are looking for two equations that relate x and y. can you figure out the first?

3x+4?

mm. Close, but remember that x is the larger number. You should be getting
3y+4=x

wait no 2(3x+4)-3x=32

ohh wait what?

One number is 4 more than three times a smaller number.

We have a number x that is 4 more than 3 times a smaller number.

ok i got that but then whats the second?

and the smaller number is y.
so we have
x is 4 more than 3 times y.
or, x=4+3y
in other words
3y+4=x

If twice the larger number is decreaased by three times the smaller number, the result is 32.

2x-3y=32

Yes. Good!
Now we set up the system.
3y+4=x
2x-3y=32

substitution

yup.

i got 10.6 repeting

Can you show your work? that's not the right answer :S

3y+8=32
catch: 3y+8=24

y=3

so x is 13:)

No, check again :)

3(3)+4=x
13=x

oh i get itt

thankss sooo muchh

yeah sorry, I made a mistake to. y=8 lol
