## Needhelpp101 2 years ago Translate the problem situation to a system of equations. Do not solve. The difference between two numbers is 1. Three times the smaller number plus the larger number is 29. What are the numbers? A. x - y = 1; x + 3z = 29 B. x - y = 1; 3x + y = 29 C. x - y = 1; x + 3y = 29 D. x + y = 1; x + 3y = 29

Umm I think C..

2. haiitskim

Wait no..

3. haiitskim

B

lol ok are you sure?

since the difference is 1 which is positive...this means x.>y x+3y=29,x-y =1

@manishsaywali I said c at first.. So technically I didn't :)

See u hav given that differnce of two no. is 1..which is actually positive nw wen u r taking x-y=1 this mean that x>y that x is greater no. and y is smaller fr the nxt condition u hav given that three times the smaller number plus the larger number is 29. that 3y+x= 29
