This is the solution to the algebra number word problem which was asked by a anonymous person in the ask question section which read, "One number is 5 more than another.their sum is 53.what are the two numbers?"

So we have one number is x and another is 5 more than it which is x + 5. they equal 53.

So we have x + x + 5 = 53

2x + 5 = 53

2x = 48

x = 48/2 = 24 for one number and 24 + 5 or 29 for the other.

So check 24 + 29 = 53

53 = 53
