The other number = x+1

Square of the numbers = x² and (x+1)²

According to the Q

⇒ (x+1)² - x² = 13

⇒ x² + 2x +1 -x² = 13

⇒ 2x +1 = 13

⇒ 2x = 13 - 1

⇒ 2x = 12

⇒ x = 12/2

∴ x = 6

∴ The numbers are

x = 6

x+1 = 6+1 = 7

Let the two consecutive numbers are a and (a+1)

then A/q,

⇒a² +1 +2a - a² = 13

⇒2a =12

⇒a =6

so, (a+1) = 7

then A/q,

**(a+1)² - a² = 13**⇒a² +1 +2a - a² = 13

⇒2a =12

⇒a =6

so, (a+1) = 7

**numbers are 6 and 7****greatest number is 7**
