The difference

The difference of two numbers is 1375. If their exact quotient is 12. Find the two numbers

Correct answer:

a =  1500
b =  125

Step-by-step explanation:


a-b = 1375
a = 12b

a-b = 1375
a = 12·b

a-b = 1375
a-12b = 0

Row 2 - Row 1 → Row 2
a-b = 1375
-11b = -1375


b = -1375/-11 = 125
a = 1375+b = 1375+125 = 1500

a = 1500
b = 125
