second number be (x+15) // one exceed other by 15 //

sum of the number is given by x+(x+15) = 95

x+x+15=95

2x+15 = 95

2x =95-15

2x = 80

x=80/2

x =40

first number x=40, second number x+15 = 40+15= 55

The numbers are 40 and 55.

one number = x

according to the question,

the another becomes, 15 + x

⇒15 + x+ x = 95

⇒ 15 + 2x = 95

⇒2x = 95 - 15

⇒ 2x = 80

⇒ x = 40

then, the required no.s are,

15+ x = 15 + 40 = 55

x = 40

therefore, the numbers are 40 and 55
