## The sum of two numbers is 95. If the larger number is increased by twice the smaller number, the result is 120. What is the larger number?

The sum of two numbers is 95. If the larger number is increased by twice the smaller number, the result is 120. What is the larger number? If S = the smaller number and L = the larger number, then which of the following systems of equations represents the word problem?

a. S + L = 95 and S + 2L = 120

b. S + L = 95 and 2S + L = 120

c. S + L = 95 and 2(S + L) = 120

## Answers ( No )

The answer is b because 2S + L is equal to L + 2S.
