One number is 6 more than another. If the sum of the smaller number and 3 times the larger number is 34, find the Two numbers.

I have errored somewhere please assist

3x+x=6=34

4x+4x=2x=7

I need two find both numbers

Your equation does not match the English sentence given.

If x is the smaller and x+6 is the larger, "sum of the smaller number and 3 times the larger number is 34"

-----> x + 3(x+6) = 34

take it from here.
