The difference between two numbers is 36. Four times the smaller is equal to 3 more than the larger. What are the numbers?

x - y  = 36    →   x  =  36 +  y     (1)

4y  = x + 3      (2)

 

Sub (1)  into  (2)

 

4y  =  (36 +  y)  +  3

 

4y - y   =   39

 

3y  = 39

 

y  = 39 /  3   =   13

 

x = 36 + 13 =   49
