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?
Let x and y be the two integers.
x/y = 21 ---- 1
x-quotient = 21
so x-21=21 --- Add 21 to both sides
By Equation 1 --> 42/y=21 --- Multiply by y on both sides
42=21y, divide by 21 on both sides.
So, the sum is x+y = 42+2 = 44
