*For example*

**Given a number exceeds another by 4 and their sum is 32.**

**Express the statement as an equation.**

Let the smaller number be y. The other number would be y + 4.

Equation:

**y + (y + 4) = 32**

If we proceed to solve it further, we'll get 2y + 4 = 32

2y = 28, which resulted y = 14.

Hence the two numbers are 14 and 18.
