1 Answer

  • Answer:

    The numbers are 49 and 55

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The sum of two numbers 104

    x+y = 104

    their difference 6

    x-y = 6

    Add the two equations together to eliminate y

    x+y = 104

    x-y = 6

    ------------------

    2x = 110

    Divide by 2

    2x/2 =110/2

    x = 55

    x+y = 104

    55+y =104

    Subtract 55 from each side

    55-55+y = 104-55

    y =49
