I seem to have a problem figuring out how to write this out. "The sum of two numbers is 3 and twice the larger number is 36 more than three times the smaller number. Find the numbers." Any help?

Find the numbers." Any help? We can set up two equations: ----- [sum of two different numbers, where x is the smaller, and y is the larger] -----[twice the larger number = 36 + three times the smaller number] Can you solve this system of equations? --Chris
