One number is 6 more than another number and their sum is 2.

Whats the equation for that.

x = one number
y = another number
===============
x + y = 2
x -6 = y
solve for x and y

x=first number
y=second number

x=y+6
x+y=2

you can then solve these two equations for x and y... they are...

x=4, y=-2
