    x+y= 26
    x = 2y+5
    2y+5+y=26
    3y+5=26
    3y=21
    3y/3=21/3
    y=7

    x=2*7+5
    x=14+5
    x=19

So
x-y = 5
5x + 2y = 53

x = y + 5,
substitiuting
5(y + 5) + 2y = 53
7y + 25 = 53
y = 4
x = 4 + 5 = 9

Find two consecutive even integers such that twice the smaller exceeds the larger by 18.


Let x be first (smaller) integer and y second (larger) integer.
  1. They are consecutive (and even) : y=x+2
  2. Twice the smaller exceeds the larger by 18: 2*x=y+18
  3. Substitute first equation into second: 2x=x+2+18
  4. 2x-x=2+18
  5. x=20
  6. y=x+2=22

These two numbers are 20 and 22.
