The sum of two positive numbers a & b is 820.If a-b=80, find the values of a & b

I am confused in this sum. help...

a+b=820 --1)

a-b=80--2)

Now , we will add  equation 1 and 2.

a+b+a-b=820+80

2a=900

a=900/2=450

a=450

now we will find b

a+b=820

i.e. 450+b=820

b=820-450

b=370

Therefore,a=450 and b=370
