Two positive numbers differ by 11. When the larger number is divided by the smaller, the quotient is 2 and the remainder is 4. what are the numbers

  • Algebra -

    x = larger number
    y = smaller number

    Equations:

    x - y = 11
    x/y = 2 + 4/y

    Get rid of fractions in second equation by multiplying by y.

    y(x/y = 2 + 4/y)
    x = 2y + 4 > plug this into the first equation.

    Solve for y and then x.
