  1. x y = 15876
    y = 9 x
    so
    9 x^2 = 15876
    x^2 = 1764
    x = 42
    ===================
    169 + x^2 = 794
    x^2 = 625
    x = 25

  2. 1 .

    a = first number

    b = second number

    The large one is 9 times the other.

    This mean :

    b = 9 a

    a * b = 15876

    a * 9 a = 15876

    9 a ^ 2 = 15876 Divide both sides by 9

    a ^ 2 = 15876 / 9

    a ^ 2 = 1764

    a = sqroot ( 1764 )

    a = 42

    b = 9 a = 9 * 42 = 3789

    2.

    a = first number

    b = second number ( In this case b = 13 )

    The sum of the squares of two positive whole numbers is 794.

    This mean :

    a ^ 2 + b ^ 2 = 794

    a ^ 2 + 13 ^ 2 = 794

    a ^ 2 + 169 = 794 Subtract 169 to both sides,

    a ^ 2 + 169 - 169 = 794 - 169

    a ^ 2 = 625

    a = sqroot ( 625 ) = 25
