• Since we are applying substitution method, the equation (ii) will be y=x-49. Now we can substitute this y in equation (i) instead of adding two equations, then the resulting equation will be x+(x-49)=97. Solve this to find the value of x.

let the two numbers be x and y  sum of two numbers is  97 .so x+y = 97 x =97-y also... View the full answer
