First, a bit about me...
I live in the northwestern part of Columbus, Ohio, not far from Dublin, Worthington, and Powell.
I am 52 years old. I hold a graduate degree from a Big Ten university (no, not Ohio State) and work for the Ohio Department of Education. My field is testing and assessment, and my understanding of tests and test items has proved helpful in preparing students for standardized tests.
I specialize in high school and college-level mathematics
, specifically pre-algebra
, algebra, geometry
, and statistics
. I also prepare students for the SAT
, and other standardized tests. I have worked with students from middle school through college, individually and in groups.
I expect students to provide the following...
1. Textbooks, problem sets, review books, or any other required material.
2. A calculator, if necessary. (If the exercise requires a graphing calculator, I expect you to have one.)
3. And... most important of all... a good attitude.
I look forward to working with you.

Let's say the smaller of the two numbers is x. The larger of the two must be x + 22.
So, x + x + 22 = 2x + 22 = 84.
Subtract 22 from both sides to get 2x = 62.
Divided by 2 to get x = 31.
So the two numbers are 31 and 31 + 22 = 53.
Same way you do when the sides are integers. For example, if the three sides are 3/4, 1 1/2. and 3 1/2, convert the mixed numbers to improper fractions, multiply all numerators, multiply all denominators, and convert your answer to a mixed number (if greater
than 1) in lowest terms...
You could try the quadratic formula...
-b +/- SQRT (b^2 - 4ac)
-99 +/- SQRT (99^2 - 4*1*(-3870))
