Hi, can you help me please with this: translate the following sentence into equation: Two numbers have a sum of 20, which is the the product of one number and the square of the other is 50.
Thanks

  • Math -

    x+y = 20
    xy^2 = 50

    don't know whether the "which is the" indicates some missing info.
