Yuri has a board that is 98 in. long. He wishes to cut the board into two pieces so that one piece will be 10 in. longer than the other. What should the length of each be

Let the shorter board's length be x. The other will be x+10.
x + x + 10 = 98
2x = 88
Solve that for x

x+x+10=98
2x=88
2x/2=88/2
x=44

Yes, and the other length is 54.
