Three times the difference of two numbers is 3 more than the larger and three times their sum is less than 8 Times the smaller by 2 .find the numbers

asked by komal
  1. smaller --- x
    larger --- y

    Now just translate into Math.

    3(y - x) = y+3
    3y - 3x = y+3
    3x - 2y = -3 **

    3(y+x) = 8x + 2
    3y + 3x = 8x + 2
    5x - 3y = 2 ***

    solve ** and ***

    You should get two whole numbers.
