How do i start please explain. WHere do i start and how to do do this. AM very confused.

G=1+2S
3G10=5S
check those statements. 
k thx got it

G = 1 + 2 S
3 G  10 = 5 S
3 ( 1 + 2 S )  10 = 5 S
3 + 6 S  10 = 5 S
6 S  5 S = 10  3
S = 7
G = 1 + 2 S
G = 1 + 2 7
G = 1 + 14
G = 15
G = greater number
S = smaller number
