The sum of two numbers is 32. Ten more than half of the sum of the numbers is 26. What are the numbers?

    Solve these two simultaneous equations, for the unknowns x and y.

    x + y = 32

    (x + y)/2 + 10 = 26

    The second equation reduces to x + y = 32 also.

    The two equations are not independent. Any pair of numbers that add up to 32 will work.
