The sum of two numbers is 44. The second number is 5 more than twice the first. Find the numbers.
x+y=44
2x+5y
Is this correct? So the answer would be 3x + 6y=44?

a=first number
b=second number
a+b=44
b=5+2a
a+b=a+5+2a =3a+5= 44
3a+5=44
3a=445
3a=39 Divided with 3
3a/3=39/3
a=13
b=5+2a
b=5+2*13
b=5+26
b=31
a+b=13+31=44
