Assume one number to be x. Then the other number will be x + 15.

Now it is given that sum of the two numbers is 95. 

Thus quation becomes x + x + 15 = 95

or         2x +15 = 95

     Transposing 15 to the RHS, it becomes

 2x = 95 - 15 = 80

Dividng both sides by 2, we get 

x = \frac{80}{2} = 40

Thus two numbers are 40 and 55
