Can someone please help me write this statement out in formula form. There should be two formulas.

Question....

Three times the larger of two numbers is equal to four times the smaller. The sum of the numbers is 21. Find the numbers.

If we let X = larger number

and Y = smaller number, then

X + Y = 21

3X = 4Y

Thank you.
