The square of one number is 23 less than the square of a second number. If the second number is 1 more than the first, what are the two numbers?
The numbers are 11 & 12
Let the first number be f and the second |number be s
Now the square of first No. is 23 less than the square of second No.
The second No. is 1 more than the first
squaring (2), we get
Now (3) - (1) gives
So the numbers are 11 & 12
