Answer :

Let the greater number be x and the smaller number be y.


According to question -


2x - 45 = y


2x - y = 45.....(1)


and, 2y - 21 = x


x - 2y = - 21.....(2)


From equation (1), we get -


x = (y + 45)/2.....(3)


Substituting the value of x in equation (2), we get -




45 - 3y = - 42


3y = 87


y = 29


substituting the value of y in equation (3), we get -


x = 37


Thus, the numbers are 37 and 29.
