If the number, increased by 2, is divided by the sum of the digits decreased by 3, the quotient is 6. Find the number. : two digits: x, y; the number: 10x + y : write an equation for each statement: ; "The units digit of a 2-digit number exceeds the tens digit by 3." y = x + 3 : " If the number, increased by 2, is divided by the sum of the digits decreased by 3, the quotient is 6." = 6 Replace y with (x+3) = 6 Do the math = 6 : Multiply both sides by 2x 11x + 5 = 2x(6) 5 = 12x - 11x x = 5 and y = 5 + 3 y = 8 : The number: 58 : ; Check solution in the statement: "If the number, increased by 2, is divided by the sum of the digits decreased by 3, the quotient is 6." = 6
