To Solve:Given:Solⁿ:• Let greater no. be = x

• Let smaller no. be = x

x – y = 10———(1)»

x+y=4yx = 4y – y

=

x = 3y★Substitutethevalueofxas3yineqⁿ1.3y – y = 10

2y = 10

→y = 5Valueofx:x – y = 10

x – 5 = 10

x = 10 + 5

→x = 15★TheNumbersAre5,15.ㅤ

HOPE IT HELPS

MARK BRAINLIEST PLS 🙂

## Answer

The numbers are 5 and 15

## Solution

Let the numbers=x,y

Given,

x-y=10 (here, you can see that y is the smaller number. otherwise the answer would be negative)

x+y=4y

Further simplification:

x = 3y

3y – y = 10

or, y=5

or, x=3y=15

Hope it helps!
