One integer is 8 less than another integer. The product of the lesser integer and -5 and 28 more than the greater integer. What are the integers?
First, I suspect that the word and should be is. The product of the lesser and -5 is 28 more than the greater integer. In that case, the equation should be -5(N-8) = N + 28. In that case you can solve for N = 2 and N-8 = -6
