One number is 12 more than another. The sum of the smaller number and twice the larger number is 39. Find the larger number. ----------------- Let the two numbers be "x" and "x+12". EQUATIONS: x+2(x+12)=39 2x+2x+24=39 4x=27 x=27/4 (this is the smaller number) x+12=27/4 + 48/4 = 75/4 (this is the larger number) Cheers, Stan H.
