The sum of two integers is greater than 12. One integer is ten less than twice the other. What are the least values of the integer?

how would you set up this problem???

a + b = 12+
a = 2b - 10
a + 10 = 2b
a + b = 12+
10 - b = 20 - 12+
3b = 22+
Minimum b = 8
Corresponding minimum a = 6

6 = 2(8) - 10
