I need help with this problem: The difference of two numbers is 11. The second is 8 less than 2 times the first. What are the two numbers?

  • algebra -

    x - (2x - 8) = 11

    Distribute:
    x - 2x + 8 = 11

    Simplify:

    -x + 8 = 11; solve for x then plug it back in to get the second number.
