If 5 times the smaller of two numbers is subtracted from twice the larger the result is 16. If the larger is increased by 3 times the smaller, the result is 63. Find the numbers.

  • MAth translate please thx -

    let
    a = smaller
    b = larger

    2b - 5a = 16
    b + 3a = 63

    2b - 5a = 16
    2b + 6a = 126

    11a = 110
    a = 10
    b = 33
