Set this up as a system of equations.

x + y = 60

x - y = 3

Solve for either x or y in one of the equations. It doesn't matter what you choose.

I'll solve for x in equation 2.

x - y = 3

x= y + 3

Now plug y + 3 in for x in the first equation. You get:

y + 3 + y = 60

Sove for y.

2y + 3 = 60

2y = 57

y = 28.5

Now plug this value into either equation and solve for x. I'll use equation 2.

x - 28.5 = 3

x = 31.5

So your answers should be 31.5 and 28.5.

Q: What is are the two numbers that equal 60 but when those numbers are subtracted it equals 3?

nope. 11 dont equal 89. those numbers arent close at all duhhh

There is no way to write any one or more of those six digits in such a way as to equal 47.

Those numbers would be 13 and 8. 13 squared + 8 squared This is equal to: 169 + 64 which equals 233 And finally, 13 - 8 equals 5.

It5 equals 4.

There aren't two whole numbers that will satisfy those conditions. If that's -120, you can use -15 and 8.

Not with those numbers

The factor pairs of 42 are (42,1)(21,2)(14,3)(7,6) Even considering their negative counterparts, none of them add up to -5.

No number satisfies all of those conditions.
