The sum of two numbers is 69. The second is 9 more than 4 times the first. What are the two numbers?

would the equation i have be right

4x+y+9=69

4*15+0+9=69

60+9=69

No. Let the two numbers be x and y, with x the smaller number.

x + y = 69

y = 4x + 9

5x + 9 = 69

x = 12

Use any equation with x and y to solve for y.
