Acc. to the 1st condition;

x+y=131----(i)

Acc. to the 2nd condition;

2x=y-5

therefore'

2x-y=-5-----(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii);

x+y=131

2x-y=-5

-----------

3x=126

x=42

Substituting the value of x in (i);

x+y=131

42+y=131

y=131-42

y=89

Hope i helped u:)

Let number be x and y

x+y=131 and 2x=y-5 given condition

adding both equation we get x=42 and y=89

x+y=131 and 2x=y-5 given condition

adding both equation we get x=42 and y=89
