<span>To get the bigger number, divide by 2 the sum of the given sum of the numbers and their difference. In this case-

(226 + 200)/2 = 426/2 = 213.

To get the smaller number, divide by 2 the difference of the given sum of the numbers and their difference. In this case -

(226 - 200)/2 = 26/2 =13.

The two numbers are 213 and 13.

The bigger number is 213</span>

<h3>Given Equation:</h3>

x = 7 + 3y

or, x - 3y - 7 = 0 ........ (i)

5x + 6y = 14

or, 5x + 6y - 14 = 0 .........(ii)

<h3>To Find:</h3>

The value of x and y.

<h3>Solution:</h3>

By dividing eq. ii by 2, we get

5/2x + 3y - 7 = 0 ........ (iii)

By adding eq. i and eq. iii, we get

15/2x = 0

or, **<u>x = 0</u>** ........(iv)

By putting eq.(iv) in eq. (i), we get

0 - 3y - 7 = 0

or, -3y = 7

or, **<u>y = </u>****<u>-</u>****<u>7/</u>****<u>3</u>**

<h2>Answer: ( 0, -7/3 )</h2>
