Problem 1 The sum of two numbers is 120. If the greater number is four times the less, what are the numbers?

Solution 1

The sum of two numbers is 120 $x + 4x = 120$

$5x = 120$

$x = 24$

$4x = 96$

The numbers are 24 and 96 answer

Problem 2 The greater of two numbers is twice the less, and the sum of the numbers is 96. What are the numbers?

Solution 2

The sum of the numbers is 96 $x + 2x = 96$

$3x = 96$

$x = 32$

$2x = 64$

The numbers are 32 and 64 answer
