I hate applications ;( Stuck on a couple, but did get the first 4 right ;)

1) One number is five more than three times the other. If their sum is
increased by 11, the result is 44. Find the numbers.

This is the way I was trying:

x = one number
3(x+5) = other number

My equation

x + 3(x + 5) + 11 = 44

My result did not work. What am I doing wrong, please?
