    Answer:

    okay.

    let the two numbers be 12x and 13x.

    now, as per the question it is reduced by 20.

    12x-20/13x-20=ratio become 2:3.

    12x-20/13x-20= 2/3.

    3(12x-20) =2(13x-20).

    36x-60= 26x-40.

    36x-26x= 60-40.

    10x = 20.

    x = 20/10.=>x = 2.

    now, first number be 12x = 12(2) = 24.

    second number be 13x= 13(2) =26.
