$\therefore$ The no.s are color(red)(13 and color(red)(13+15=28

#### Explanation:

Let the 2 no.s be $x$ and $x + 15$

According to the question,

$x + x + 15 = 41$

$2 x + 15 = 41$

$2 x = 41 - 15$

$2 x = 26$

$x = \frac{26}{2}$

color(magenta)(x=13

$\therefore$ The no.s are color(red)(13 and color(red)(13+15=28

~Hope this helps! :)
