If the larger number can be anything more than twice the smaller number, then the two numbers can be:1 + 45 = 463 + 43 = 465 + 41 = 467 + 39 = 469 + 37 = 4611 + 35 = 4613 + 33 = 4615 + 31 = 46

18 and 38

18 and 38

The smaller number is 8, and the larger one is 21. 8 + 13 = 21 8 + 21(2) = 50

The larger number is 48, the smaller number is 22. 48 is twice the amount of 22 plus 4. If the smaller number is "x" then the larger number is 2x+4. We know that x+2x+4 =70 which ius the same as saying 3x+4 = 70 or 3x = 70-4 = 66 so x, the smaller number is 66/3 =22

There are two consecutive odd numbers such that five times the smaller plus twice the greater is 25. What is the smaller number?

The sum of the sum and difference gives twice the larger number 14 + 4 = 18 → the larger number is 18 ÷ 2 = 9 The difference of the sum and the difference gives twice the smaller number 14 - 4 = 10 → the smaller number is 10 ÷ 2 = 5 → The two numbers are 9 and 5.
