Q:
# The sum of two numbers is 640. If you divide the bigger number by the smaller, you’ll get quotient 7 and remainder 64. Find the numbers.

Accepted Solution

A:

let 'x' and 'y' represent the two numbers and x>y

The sum of two numbers is 640:

x + y = 640

If you divide the bigger number by the smaller, you’ll get quotient 7 and remainder 64:

x = 7y + 64

by solving the system of equations:

x + y = 640

x = 7y + 64

we find:

x = 568

y = 72

The sum of two numbers is 640:

x + y = 640

If you divide the bigger number by the smaller, you’ll get quotient 7 and remainder 64:

x = 7y + 64

by solving the system of equations:

x + y = 640

x = 7y + 64

we find:

x = 568

y = 72
