do we set them equal to each other?
three times the smaller is 16 less than twice the larger. so 3x+16 2(36-x) got this ?
Only if those two "numbers" are equal to each other! Otherwise, no!
3x+16= 2(36-x)
okay, then solve right?
yup
find x from there, u will get the smaller number
then substitute for the right, correct?
larger*
yes, but first tell me what did u get 'x' value.
11.2
is that correct?
yes, even i get 11.2, i wonder why is it not and integer, anyways, find larger using 36-x= ?
using 36? or 38?
sorry 38
its okay, but I got 26.8 for large
ohh.thats why we didn't get an integer, its 38, sorry my typing mistake
oh
solve this : 3x+16= 2(38-x)
okay
i got 28 for large, 10 for small
i got x=12, please verify the calculations.....

the larger is 26
