Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

here the equations are,

a=2(b-6)                         and

a+b=18

therefore,

2(b-6)+b=18

2b-12+b=18

3b=30

b=10

a=18-10=8


a=8   and  b=10




Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
