# One number is 4 more than another, and their sum is 60. What is the smaller number?

**Solution:**

Given, one number is 4 more than another number.

Let another number be x

One number = 4 + x

Given, sum is 60

x + x + 4 = 60

2x + 4 = 60

2x = 56

⇒ x = 56 / 2

x = 28

One number = 4 + 28 = 32

Therefore, the numbers are 28 and 32. The smaller number is 28.

## One number is 4 more than another, and their sum is 60. What is the smaller number?

**Summary:**

One number is 4 more than another, and their sum is 60. The smaller number is 28.
