Can someone answer my question for once, instead of one that's already been answered again and again? (and that is not my question).

x for your smaller number, x + 11 for your larger one

Using my brain I get 33 for the smaller, 44 for larger.

let x and y the 2 numbers.

x + y = 77  add  eq1 and  eq2

x - y = 11

--------------

2x = 88

x = 44 answer/

solving for y

x + y = 77

y = 77 - x

y = 77 - 44

y = 33 answer//

Numbers are 44 and 33.

A+B=77

2A=88, A=44, B=33

44+33=77

44-33=11

The smaller number=(77-11)/2=33

The bigger number=77-33=44.

According to my toes ... 33 - and whatever the other one works out to be.
