Two numbers are i
Let the two numbers be x and y.
Then, by first condition, ratio of these two numbers = 5 :6
and by second condition, then, 8 is subtracted from each of the numbers, then ratio becomes 4:5
5x – 4y = 8
Now, put the value of y in Eq. (ii), we get
5x – 4 ( ) = 8
And x = 40
Put the value of x in Eq. (i), we get
So, y = = 48
Hence, the required numbers are 40 and 48.
