MEDAL!!!
The sum of two numbers is 825. Dividing the larger number by the smaller number yields 8 with a remainder of 15. What are the two numbers? (You can solve this using a system of equations)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0go step by step pick your 2 numbers decide which is larger sum is what you get when you add when you divide the original is the quotient * divisor + remainder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1l + s = 825 yes l/s = 8 + 15/s should suffice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[x + y = 825\] (x is larger) \[8y + 15 = x\] I just did the inverse of what it said. Since the larger number would have to be divided, and then a remainder of 15.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(8y + 15) + y = 825\] \[9 y + 15 = 825\] \[9y = 810\] \[ y = 90\] to find out x: \[825 = 90 = 735 = x\]
