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

### 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.
