Let the Larger Number be x and smaller Number be y Respectively
According to Given Condition
x - y = 8-----------------1
x + 2 = 3y
x = 3y - 2 ------------------2

Substitute the value of x in Equation 1
x - y = 8
3y - 2 - y = 8
2y = 8 + 2
2y = 10
y = 5

Substitute the value of y in  Equation 1
x - y = 8
x - 5 = 8
x = 13

SO,
The Larger No = 13
And Smaller No = 5
