Answer :

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


We know that -


Dividend = Quotient Divisor + Remainder


According to question -


3x = 4y + 8


3x - 4y = 8.....(1)


and, 5y = 3x + 5


- 3x + 5y = 5.....(2)


From equation (1), we get -


x = (4y + 8)/3.....(3)


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





y - 8 = 5


y = 13


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


x = 20


Thus, the numbers are 20 and 13.
