Twice the first number is 3 more than 5 times the other number. What are the two numbers? ---- Equations: x + y = 40 2x= 5y+3 ---------------- Substitute for "x" and solve for "y": 2(40-y) = 5y+3 80-2y = 5y+3 7y = 77 y = 11 ---- Solve for "x": x + y = 40 x + 11 = 40 x = 29 ================== Cheers, Stan H.
