Sum of two numbers is 95. one number exceeds the other by 15,find the number?

  • algebra - ,

    a = first number

    b = second number



    b = 15 + a



    a + b = 95

    a + 15 + a = 95

    2 a + 15 = 95

    2 a = 95 - 15

    2 a = 80 Diwide both sides by 2

    a = 80 / 2

    a = 40



    b = 15 + a

    b = 15 + 40

    b = 55



    a + b = 40 + 55 = 95
