Answer: (17,19)

2) Find two numbers whose sum is 66 and whose difference is 18.

Answer: (37,29)

These ones I am not sure of:

**Reiny**, Friday, February 13, 2009 at 8:10am#3: Let the larger be x, the smaller be y

<The difference between two numbers is 18> ---> x - y = 16

<Three times the larger number is seven times the smaller> ---> 3x = 7y or 3x-7y = 0

#4 (same way)

x - y = 18

3x + 2y = 74
