## Answers ( No )

To find the answer,we can set up two equations:

Let the integer be x and y seperately,and x be the larger number:

x+y=74

y=74-x….(1)

x-2y=26…(2)

Put (1) into (2):

x-2(74-x)=26

x-148+2x=26

3x=26+148

x=174/3

x=58

Put the above answer into (1):

y=74-58

y=16

Therefore,the answer is x=58, y=16.

Hope it helps!
