The quotient of two positive integers is 21. The difference between the larger integer and this quotient is 21. What is the sum of the two integers?

Hello Guest!

Let x and y be the two integers. 

x/y = 21 ---- 1

Let x>y

x-quotient = 21

Quotient =21,

so x-21=21 --- Add 21 to both sides

x=42

By Equation 1 --> 42/y=21 --- Multiply by y on both sides

42=21y, divide by 21 on both sides.

y=2 

So, the sum is x+y = 42+2 = 44

Hope this helps Guest!
