Find the two numbers and solve the equation. : Let the smaller number be: x Then the larger number is:x+18 sum means + twice means *2 is means = : The equation to solve is: x+2(x+18)=45 x+2x+36=45 3x+36=45 3x+36-36=45-36 3x=9 3x/3=9/3 x=3 The smaller number is: 3 The larger number is: x+18=3+18=21 : Check: 3+2*21=45 3+42=45 45=45 We're right.
