60 - 20 = 40

40 / 20 = 2

Answer check: (2*20)+20=60 (40)+20=60 The numbers are 40 and 20.

40 / 20 = 2

Answer check: (2*20)+20=60 (40)+20=60 The numbers are 40 and 20.

Let x be the smallest number.

Let x + 2 be the other number (consecutive even integer)

Now to translate the rest;)

three times the smaller 3(x)

19 more -19

sum of the two integers - (x) +( x+2)

Pulling it together,

3x -19 = x + x +2

collect like terms

3x - 19 = 2x + 2

Put all the constants on one side by adding 19 to both sides.

3x - 19 +19= 2x + 2 + 19

3x = 2x +21

Subtract 2x from both sides to have all the x's on one side.

3x - 2x = 2x +21 - 2x

x = 21

The other number is 21 + 2, or 23

Check:three times the smaller = 3 x 21 = 63

sum of the two integers = 21 + 23 or 44

is 63 at least 19 more than 44

Let x + 2 be the other number (consecutive even integer)

x = 21

is 63 at least 19 more than 44

Assume this:

A is the greater number

B is the lesser

You have 2 equations

A + B = 20

A = 3xB - 4

Substitute the solution for the second eqation into the first

(3xB - 4 ) + B = 20

solve for B

3xB + B = 20 + 4

4xB = 24

B = 6

solve for A with solution for B

go back to equation 2

A = 3xB - 4

A = 3x6 - 4

A = 14

So A = 14

and B = 6

Otherwise use trial and error.

Hope that helps.

It depends on which way you want to go.

100*(1,130-1,058)/1,130 gives 6.37% so the smaller number is 6.37% smaller than the larger number.

100*(1,130-1,058)/1,058 gives 6.81, so the larger number is 6.81% larger than the smaller number.

100*(1,130-1,058)/1,130 gives 6.37% so the smaller number is 6.37% smaller than the larger number.

100*(1,130-1,058)/1,058 gives 6.81, so the larger number is 6.81% larger than the smaller number.

take a no. = X

the no. X is 5 greter than another no.

hence another no. is X-5

sum of the squares = smaller no.

[(X*X)]+[(X-5)(X-5)] = X-5

solve this and u will get the desired answer.
