second number  x
first number  x2
"If you take onehalf of the first number and increase it by the second number,the result is atleast 41"
> (1/2)x + x2 ≥ 41
solve for x to get your second number, then evaluate x2 for the first.
It is up to you to decide if only whole numbers are allowed or if you include fractions.
