# 4. Sum of two numbers is 95. If one exceeds the other by 15, find the numbers.

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

Thus two numbers are 40 and 55
