    Step-by-step explanation:

    let the two numbers be x and y

    → x + y = 72 ….(1)

    if one no. exceed the other by 12 means

    x increases by 12 means (y + 12)

    → x = (y+12) …..(2)

    putting value of eq (2) in 1st

    y + 12 + y = 72

    2y = 72-12

    2y = 60

    y = 30

    if we put y value in equation (2)

    x = 30 + 12

    x = 42

    Answer:   (x + 12) + x = 72

                     (x + x) + 12 = 72

                        2x  + 12  = 72

                                 2x = 72 – 12

                                      = 60

                                    x = 60 / 2

                                       = 30

    u can check the answer if u want just but the number 30 in places of “x”

    hope it helps:)
