Write a system of linear equations and the resulting system. Let x be the larger number and y be the smaller number.
x+y=
Write a system of linear equations and the resulting system. Let x be the larger number and y be the smaller number.
x+y=
X+y=23
x-y=5
add the equations
2x=28
x=14
thus
14+y=23
y=9
so-
x=14 y=9
14+9=23
14-9=5
