• algebra 2 -

second number ---- x
first number ----- x-2

"If you take one-half of the first number and increase it by the second number,the result is atleast 41"
-----> (1/2)x + x-2 ≥ 41

solve for x to get your second number, then evaluate x-2 for the first.
It is up to you to decide if only whole numbers are allowed or if you include fractions.
