Number 839 divide into the two addends that the first was 17 greater than 60% of the second.

Result

x =  325.25
y =  513.75

#### Solution:

$x=839 - (839-17)/(1+60/100) = \dfrac{ 1301 }{ 4 } = 325.25$
$x+y = 839 \ \\ x = 17 + \dfrac{ 60}{100} y \ \\ 17 + \dfrac{ 60}{100} y + y = 839 \ \\ \ \\ y = \dfrac{ 839 - 17 }{ 1 + \dfrac{ 60}{100}} = 513.75 \ \\ x = 839 - y = 325.25 \ \\$
