**DrBob222**, Sunday, December 13, 2009 at 9:22pmx = one number

y = other number.

===============

x+y=5.3

x-y=1.7

Solve for x and y.

You don't need the other information but it can be used if you wish.

**Reiny**, Sunday, December 13, 2009 at 9:24pmx+y = 5.3

x-y = 1.7

add them

2x = 7.0

x = 3.5

then y = 1.8

the info that their product is 6.3 was redundant, but checked out.
