Answer:

Step one: Create variable names for each number. Let's use x and y. We know the sum of these two numbers is 26, therefore we know, x+y=26. The problem also told us that "the second number is one less than two times the first number" therefore we can write the equation y=2x-1. This gives us two equations that we can put into a system to solve. There are multiple ways to solve this system, but I will use substitution. I will substitute the equation y=2x-1 into the y value in the equation x+y=26. Doing this substitution gives us the new equation x+(2x-1)=26. This simplifies to 3x-1=26. Solving for x gives us x=9. After substituting x=9 into the equation x+y=26. we find y= 17. Therefore the two numbers that satisfy the problem are 9 and 17.
