Two numbers are each multiplied by themselves to give two new numbers. The difference between these two new numbers is less than ten; the difference between the two original numbers was one.
The two original numbers added together was more than 7. What is one of the original numbers?
Let x and y represent the first two numbers
Let a and b represent the two new numbers
a-b < 10
x-y = 1
x + y > 7
Am i on the right path?
What do I do next?
