    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let one positive integer be x

    other integer = x-16

    Quotient when x is divided by x-16 = 5

    According to the question

     \frac{x}{x - 16}  = 5 \\ x = 5(x - 16) \\ x = 5x - 80 \\ 5x - x = 80 \\ 4x = 80 \\ x =  \frac{80}{4}  \\ x = 20

    The first no. = x = 20

    other integer = x-16 = 2016 = 4

    Hope it will help you...
