This involves setting up two linear equations and solving for the two unknowns.

#### Explanation:

If you let the two numbers be represented by x and y, you can set up two equations and solve by substitution.

Let

$y > x$

We know the following two things

$y = 6 x$

$y = x + 25$

Now substitute the first expression into the second one and solve for x

$6 x = x + 25$

$5 x = 25$

$x = 5$

Next, solve for y

$y = 6 \cdot 5 = 30$

Now go back and check that the two stipulations are correct.
