The sum of two numbers is 44. The second number is 5 more than twice the first. Find the numbers.
x+y=44
2x+5y
Is this correct? So the answer would be 3x + 6y=44?

    a=first number

    b=second number

    a+b=44

    b=5+2a

    a+b=a+5+2a =3a+5= 44

    3a+5=44

    3a=44-5

    3a=39 Divided with 3

    3a/3=39/3

    a=13

    b=5+2a

    b=5+2*13

    b=5+26

    b=31

    a+b=13+31=44
