Find the largest possible values for the integersAnswer by Maths68(1474)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x be the smaller and y be the larger integer. The Larger of 2 integers is 4 times the smaller. y=4x..........(1) The sum of the 2 integers is less than twenty x+y<20 Put the value of y from (1) to above equation x+4x<20 5x<20 5x/5<20/5 x<4 so x is 3,2 or 1 Put the these values of x in (1) y=4(3) y=12 y=4(2) y=8 y=4(1) y=4 So when x = 3,2,1 y = 12,8,4 Largest possible values (x,y)=(3,12)
