10 + 13

Step-by-step explanation:

23 minus 3 = 20

20 divide by 2 = 10

10 + 3 = 13

So, 10 plus 13 = 23

13 is 3 numbers more than 10

A. Assign the two numbers unknown variables:

Let one number equal (x)

Let the second number equal (y)

B. Create equations from the given information.

Two numbers have a sum of 23:

Equation 1. x + y = 23

One number is 3 more than the other:

Equation 2. x = 3 + y

C. Substitute the value of (x) from Equation 2 into Equation 1.

(3 + y) + y = 23

3 + y + y = 23

3 + 2y = 23 Subtract 3 from both sides.

2y = 20 Divide both sides by 2.

y = 10 Substitute y = 10 into either Equation 1 or 2 to find (x). Use Equation 2.

x = 3 + 10 = 13

x = 13
