Suppose that the sum of two numbers is 16, and the sum of their squares is 178. Find the numbers.

- anonymous

13 and 3

- anonymous

it was right! ok, and the last question is just like this - Find two numbers such that their sum is 12 and their product is 26.

- anonymous

you sure it's 26?

- anonymous

Yep. It says it exactly.

- anonymous

it might not be a whole number, if that helps. It might not be, but I'm not sure.

- anonymous

it's definitely not a whole number

- anonymous

wait i got it hold on

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

6+sqrt(10) is one of the numbers, the other one you just do 12-(6+sqrt(10))

- anonymous

it said it was wrong :(

- anonymous

which number is smaller and which is larger, btw?

- anonymous

hmm
hold on

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

the numbers i gave up add up to 12 and multiply to 26...

- anonymous

hmm...

- anonymous

which number is smaller and which number is bigger again?

- anonymous

6+sqrt(10) is bigger

- anonymous

ok, that it now says that 6+sqrt(10) is correct, but the other one is still wrong

- anonymous

the only clue I have is that the other answer is a smaller value

- anonymous

you just do 12-(6+sqrt(10)). which is 6-sqrt(10)

- anonymous

oh ok. I originally put in the whole 12 - 6

- anonymous

thank you so much!! you helped me majorly.

- anonymous

I already gave you best answer + became a fan. would you want anything else?

I have other questions I was going to post in another post.. I definitely understand if you don't want to help anymore, but if you aren't doing anything or won't mind, can I ask more questions?

- anonymous

The length of a rectangular floor is 3 meters less than three times its width. If a diagonal of the rectangle is 13 meters, find the length and width of the floor.

- anonymous

lenth:12. width:5

- anonymous

Yes! It was right :)

- anonymous

I have 1 just like this, and then other problems that are similar but not the same general type of problem

- anonymous

The perimeter of a rectangle is 44 inches, and its area is 120 square inches. Find the length and width of the rectangle.

- anonymous

are you still here?

- anonymous

length is 12 width is 10

- anonymous

It was right! I have 4 more problems, and its perfectly fine if you dont want to help with all of them. I'm already grateful.

- anonymous

Set up an equation and solve the problem.
Larry's time to travel 357 miles is 3 hours more than Terrell's time to travel 212 miles. Terrell drove 2 miles per hour faster than Larry. How fast did each one travel?
