Two numbers

The difference between the two numbers is 74. If we divide a larger number by a smaller one, we get a quotient 7 and the rest of 2. Determine both numbers.

Correct answer:

a =  86
b =  12

Step-by-step explanation:

a-b = 74
a = 7b+2

a-b = 74
a = 7•b+2

a-b = 74
a-7b = 2

a = 86
b = 12
