# Two numbers

We have two numbers. Their sum is 140. One-fifth of the first number is equal to half the second number. Determine those unknown numbers.

x =  100
y =  40

### Step-by-step explanation:

x+y=140
x/5 = y/2

x+y = 140
2x-5y = 0

x = 100
y = 40

Our linear equations calculator calculates it. Did you find an error or inaccuracy? Feel free to write us. Thank you! Math student
I just took x as 40 and y as 100 and it says I'm wrong :( Dr Math
