Question

The sum of two numbers is 52. The greater number is 4 more than the smaller number. Which equation can be used to solve for the smaller number? x − (x + 4) = 52 x + (x + 4) = 52 x(x + 4) = 52 x(x − 4) = 52

2 Answer

  • Let's assume x be the smaller number.

    Given that, The greater number is 4 more than the smaller number.

    So, greater number= x+4.

    It's also given that, The sum of two numbers is 52. Which means sum of x and x+4 must be equa to 52. Hence,

    x + (x + 4) = 52

  • Answer:

    its B x + (x + 4) = 52
