one number is two less than a second number. If you take one-half of the first number and increase it by the second number,the result is atleast 41. find the least possible value for the second number.

  • algebra 2 - ,

    second number ---- x
    first number ----- x-2

    "If you take one-half of the first number and increase it by the second number,the result is atleast 41"
    -----> (1/2)x + x-2 ≥ 41

    solve for x to get your second number, then evaluate x-2 for the first.
    It is up to you to decide if only whole numbers are allowed or if you include fractions.
