## Sum of two numbers is 95. If one exceeds the other by 15, find the numbers

Sum of two numbers is 95. If one exceeds the other by 15, find the numbers. If the sum of two numbers is given as 95 and they differ by 15,then the two numbers are 40 and 55.

## Sum of two numbers is 95. If one exceeds the other by 15, find the numbers

**Solution:**

Assume any one number to be a variable and form a linear equation by using the relationships between the two numbers mentioned in the problem statement.

Let one of the numbers be x.

Then the other number is 95 - x.

If we assume x to be larger among two of them,

⇒ x - (95 - x) = 15 (as one exceeds the other by 15)

⇒ 2x = 15 + 95 ⇒ x = 110 / 2 = 55

The other number is (95 - x) which is 95 - 55 = 40

Thus, the two numbers are 40 and 55.
