Solution: Let the two numbers be x and y respectively, such that y > x. According to the question, y = 3x ……………… (1) y – x = 26 …………..(2) Substituting the value of (1) into (2), we get 3x – x = 26 x = 13 ……………. (3) Substituting (3) in (1), we get y = 39 Hence, the numbers are 13 and 39. (ii) The larger of two supplementary angles exceeds the smaller by 18 degrees. Find them. Solution: Let the larger angle by xo and smaller angle be yo. We know that the sum of two supplementary pair of angles is always 180o. According to the question, x + y = 180o……………. (1) x – y = 18o ……………..(2) From (1), we get x = 180o – y …………. (3) Substituting (3) in (2), we get 180o – y – y =18o 162o = 2y y = 81o ………….. (4) Using the value of y in (3), we get x = 180o – 81o = 99o
