18 and 38
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.
smaller no.14 larger 37
Numbers don't stop in either direction. If you subtract a larger number from a smaller one, the answer will be negative.
Do-it-in-your-head method:68 minus 12 is 56;Half of 56 is 28, this is your smaller number;28 + 12 is 40, this is the larger number.Shazam.
Smaller number = x Larger number = 2x x+2x=18. 3x=18 x=6 The numbers are 6 and 12.
Subtract the absolute value of the smaller number from the absolute value of the larger number. The answer will have the sign of the larger numbers.
subtract the smaller number from the larger number.
Hmmm. Let me see now ... "The smaller number is less than the larger number", eh ? I'm going to have to think that over carefully.
When the smaller one is a factor of the larger one. (That also means the larger one is a multiple of the smaller one.) The smaller number is the GCF of both.
The larger number is 12.
that is the dumbest question ever
