Answer:58 and 29

Step-by-step explanation:Set up your equations:

1) x + y = 87

2) x – y = 29

Use one of the equations to focus on when moving the numbers around such as for this one I used equation one:

3) y = -x + 87

x = (-x +

87) + 29x = -x +

116x + x = 116

2x = 116

x = 58

Input your value for x:

4) 58 + y = 87

y = 87 – 58

y = 29

Solve and check if your values are correct:

5) 58 + 29 = 89

correct58 – 29 = 29

correcti think itâ€™s 29 but im not sure
