the problem reads

The difference between two numbers is 16.

Three times the larger number is seven times the smaller.

What are the numbers

Would the set up be...

Let x = one number

Let y = the other number

x - y = 16

3x = 7y

there should also be a bracket on the left but I dont know how to do that on the internet.

Thanks!!!!
