.-. I mean, 17 + 10 = 27; and ... 17 - 10 = 7 .... to check ..

sorry typo error..

You got it now :-) x = 17 (the larger number), and y = 10 (the smaller number).

Since this a problem in system, specific x and y should be indicated, and you must show how you were able to come up with x + x + 7 = 27 from the pair of equations, that is, x + y = 27 (Equation 1) and x - y = 7 (Equation 2). Have a good Monday.
