two numbers have an average of 2100 and one number is $425 more than the other number. What are the numbers

Let the first number be x and the second number be y. We're given two equations:

- (x + y)/2 = 2100 (Average)
- y = x + 425

Rearrange equation (1) by cross multiplying

x + y = 2 * 2100

x + y = 4200

So we have our revised set of equations:

- x + y = 4200

- y = x + 425

Substituting equation (2) into equation (1) for y, we get:

x + (x + 425) = 4200

Combining like terms, we get:

2x + 425 = 4200

Using our

equation solver, we get:

x =

**1887.5**
Which means using equation (2), we get

y = 1887.5 + 425

y =

**2312.5**
