X + y = 84
x = 4y + 9
so 4y + 9 +y = 84
5y = 75
y = 15
x = 60 + 9 = 69
Check
69 + 15 = 84

SOURCE: gr 8 question

The two numbers are 9 and 27.

Solution:
Suppose the two numbers are x and y, then,

x + y = 36 ---------1
and
x = 3y -------------2

Solving equation 1 and 2...

3y+y=36 => 4y=36 => y = 9
x + 9 = 36 => x = 27

### Sum of two numbers

Say first number is x and second is y, then
x + y = 205 ( rewriting: y = 205 - x)
and
x - y = 75.
Substituting second equation into third:
x - (205-x) = 75
x - 205 + x = 75
2x - 205 = 75
2x = 75 + 205
2x = 280
x = 140
y= 205 - x (above) = 205 - 140 = 65

### Find two numbers such that the sum of the first and three times the second is 5 and the sum of the second and 2 times the first is 8

Let the two numbers be X and Y:
X + 3Y = 5
2X + Y = 8

Rewrite the second equation to Y = 8 - 2X and substitute in first equation:
X + 3(8-2X) = 5
X + 24 - 6X = 5
-5X + 24 = 5
-5X = 5 - 24
-5X = -19
X = 19/5 = 3.8
Y = 8 - 2(3.8) = 8 - 7.6 = 0.4

Check: 3.8 + 3(0.4) = 3.8 + 1.2 = 5
2(3.8) + .4 = 7.6 + 0.4 = 8
