    n – the larger of two i ntegers

    m – the smaller of two integers

    n + m = 74 → n = 74 – m

    n = 2m + 26

    Therefore we have:

    2m + 26 = 74 – m    |subtract 26 from both sides

    2m = 48 – m    |add m to both sides

    3m = 48     |divide both sides by 3

    m = 16

    n = 74 – 16 = 58

    Answer: 16 and 58.
