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.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I guess I am confused on how to arrange them

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Which is your smaller number?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

x

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I come up with a fraction. Does that sound right to you?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

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.
