Homework Help: Math

Posted by Jessica on Sunday, October 22, 2006 at 12:22pm.

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.
