Let the smaller number be A and larger number be B. Given: 5 + A = B......................(1) 5A = 4B.........................(2)

Solution:

Substitute (1) in (2)

5A = 4(5 + A)

5A = 20 + 4A

5A - 4A = 20

A = 20

Substitute A in (1)

B = 5 + 20

B = 25

Hence the larger number is 25 and smaller number is 20.
