# Math Problem

Ok. this is an "Extreme Challenge" question, according to my son. I have to admit I am not sure on this one. I have solved it, but not correctly apparently lol

Here we go.

Two real numbers such that one number plus 12.5 equals 1/2 the other number. I Take this to mean: x/2=y+12.5 or y/2 = x+12.5

Additionally, the sum of the squares of those numbers have a difference of 200. I take this as:

X squared - Y squared = 200

or

Y squared-X squared = 200

Solve for X and Y.

The only other statement is that it not need to be in decimal form. An exact fraction is preferred.

My brain hurts.
