Answer :

Let one of the integers be x.

The difference between the two integers is 36.


The other integer = x – 36.


According to the given condition,



x = 4 (x – 36) (Transposing x – 36 to RHS)


x = 4x – 144 (Removing bracket)


x – 4x = -144 (Transposing 4x to LHS)


-3x = -144


x = (Transposing – 3 to RHS)


x = 48


The two integers are


x = 48


x – 36 = 48 – 36 = 12


The two positive integers are 12 and 48.
