Two computer programs together require 51.8 MB of memory. if one program requires 2.0 MB of memory more than twice the memory of the other, what are the

memory requirements of each program?


The memory requirements for each programme are16.2 MB,35.6 MB
2 3 2
i mean b detailed explanation
with all the steps
let memory required for first programme be x and second programme be y.so x+y= 51.8.given one memory requires 2 MB more than twicw te other. Therefore y= 2x+2. Substitute the value of y in first equation i.e x+y= 51.8. so x+2x+2=51.8.this implies 3x+2=49.8. so x=49.8/3=16.2. therefore y=2x+2=2(16.2)+2=35.6 therefore x=16.2,y=35.6

The Brainliest Answer!
Lets second program requires X MB memory, then 2.0 MB of memory more than twice the memory of second is (2X + 2.0) MB memory.

X + (2X + 2.0) = 51.8
3X + 2.0 = 51.8
3X = 51.8 - 2.0
3X = 49.8
X = 16.6

So first program requires 16.6 MB
other requires 51.8 - 16.6 = 35.2 MB

16.6 MB, 35.2 MB
