**Steve**, Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 7:11pmThey're just telling you the units. Algebraically,

x = 2 + y

y = x - 2

and all terms are in inches (in).

Carrying those in around may seem trivial here, but when you start doing problems in physics and chemistry, knowing the units can be a life saver!
