write an equation for the following: The sum of two numbers is 54, and their difference is nine more than the smaller number. What are the two numbers?
I would first decide which will be your smaller number or your larger x or y? Then arrange them according to the directions.
I guess I am confused on how to arrange them
Which is your smaller number?
I come up with a fraction. Does that sound right to you?
Sorry, I think I'm a little out of my depth. The numbers I get are incorrect. Resubmit the question and I'm sure someone more experienced will be able to help you. Sorry to have wasted your time.
No problem so am I, but Thank You for trying. I am happy to know it wasn't extremely easy and it was me!
