The sum of two numbers is 180 and the larger number exceeds four times the smaller number by ten, what are the 2 numbers?
The numbers are
If we replace
Then we find
The numbers are:
The problem is to find such numbers, that:
- Their sum is 180
- Larger number exceeds 4 times the smaller by 10.
These conditions lead to folowing system of equations:
If we substitute
Now we can substitute
Finally we can write the answer:
