four times the difference or two posotive integer numbers is equal to half the sum of the numbers. If one of the numbers is 14, what is the other number?
I just cant get this can anyone help me?

let x = the other number
then we setup the equation.
4*(x14) = (1/2)*(x+14)
4x  56 = (1/2)x + 7
4x  0.5x = 56 + 7
3.5x = 63
x = 18
hope this helps~ :)
