Question #b5928

22 and 30

Explanation:

Smaller number= x
Larger number= x + 8

$\left(x + \left(x + 8\right)\right) = 52$

$2 x + 8 = 52$

$2 x = 52 - 8$

$2 x = 44$

$x = 22 \to$ smaller number

So...
larger number is x+8

22+8= 30

Answer:

The numbers are 30 and 22.

Explanation:

Suppose,one number is $x$ and the another is $x - 8$.
According to problem,
$x + x - 8 = 52$
$\implies 2 x = 60$
$\implies x = 30$
Then one number is 30 and the other is $30 - 8 = 22$
