by 2 stsm x/y=5/3 so 3x=5y by solving 1 and 2 equa we get..y=15 so x=25

so no r 25 and 15

solution:

let one part of number = x

therefore , other part of number = x+10

according to question ,

x+10/x=5/3

3(x+10)= 5x

3x+30 =5x

30 = 5x -3x

30 = 2x

or x=30/2

x=15

therefore one part of number = 15

and other part = 15+10 =25

hence number = 15+25 =40

hope this helps you!!!
