The greater of two numbers is 1 more than twice the smaller. Three times the greater exceeds 5 times the smaller by 10. Find the numbers.

The second of three numbers is 1 less than the first. The third number is 5 less than the second. If the first number is twice as large as the third, find the three numbers.

These are two separate problems and we are supposed to write an equation for each and solve it for the numbers, but only using one variable!! HELP!

L-1=2S

4L-10=5s

I will critique your work on the second.
