4x - x = 36 so x = 12 and the other number is 48.

If the order of the pairs of numbers doesn't matter (that is the pairs (1, 11) and (11, 1) are considered the same) then there are 89 such pairs.If the order does matter (that is the pairs (1, 11) and (11, 1) are considered different) then there are 178 such pairs.There must be one number larger than the other.The smaller number must be at least 1, so the larger number must be at least 11.The larger number must be at most 99, so the smaller number must be at most 89.Thus, looking at the smaller numbers, it can be one of the numbers 1 to 89 - a total of 89 possibilities - each of which has a corresponding larger number.Therefore there are 89 combinations of 2 integers from the number 1-99 that have a difference of 10.If however, the order of the integers is important, then the smaller number can be the first number or second number, which means that there are twice as many possible pairs, giving 178 permutations of 2 integers from the numbers 1-99 that have a difference of 10.

Divide the larger number by the smaller. If the result has no remainder (no decimal) then the smaller number is a factor of the larger.

You can call your numbers "a" and "b", and write two equations:a + b = 37 b = a + 11 If you substitute the second equation in the first one, you can easily solve for "a" (the smaller of the two numbers).

The sum of the numbers is 240. If one number is 5 times as big as the other then 240 must be divided by 6. 240/6 = 40. The smaller number must be this while the larger number is 5 times the size. Small number = 40 Larger number = 40 * 5 = 200

If their difference is 25 then the larger number is the smaller number plus 25. Let the smaller number be x then the larger number is x + 25 → their sum is x + (x + 25) = 81 → 2x = 56 → x = 28 → the two numbers are 28 and 53.

The larger of two numbers is 8 more than 4 times the smaller if the larger number is increased by four times the smaller the result is 40. From this statement, we can calculate the values of the numbers where you get the value of the larger number to be 24 and that of the smaller number to be 4.
