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.

The smaller number is x. The larger number is 4x + 4. Their sum is 34. Therefore x + 4x + 4 = 34. 5x + 4 = 34. 5x = 30. x = 6. The smaller number is 6. The larger number is (4 x 6) + 4 = 28.

13 and 6

The two numbers are 9 and 23. 23-9 = 14 23-(2*9) = 5

You may or you may not. If you divided by a decimal number that is greater than 1 then you will get a smaller number whereas if you divide by a number less than 1 then you will get a larger number.

Because the LCM has to be a multiple of both numbers. A number can't have a multiple smaller than itself.

The smaller number is x. The larger number is 4x + 4. Their sum is 34. Therefore x + 4x + 4 = 34. 5x + 4 = 34. 5x = 30. x = 6. The smaller number is 6. The larger number is (4 x 6) + 4 = 28.

Not always, if the smaller number is 0 or a negative number. Then their sum will be equal or less than the greater number.

Because the number of larger units will be less than the number of smaller units, and when you divide the answer is usually smaller than the number you started with.

It is the larger even number less the smaller one.
