Let

One number = x

other number = y

Sum

====

x+y=25

x=25-y……………(1)

Product

=======

xy=144……………(2)

Put the value of x in above equation

(25-y)y=144

25y-y^2=144

y^2-25y+144=0

y^2-16y-9y+144=0

y^2-16y-9y+144=0

y(y-16)-9(y-16)=0

(y-9)(y-16)=0

y-9=0 or y-16=0

y=9 or y=16

Put the value of y in (1)

x=25-16=9

x=25-9=16

So numbers are 9 and 16

2. ### ✍ What Is Given ?

• The sum of two numbers is 25.
• Their product is 144.

### ✍ What we need to find ?

• The 2 numbers.

### ✍ Solution :-

Let one number be x.

Let another number be y.

So, As per Equation,

### x × y = 144.

Now, xy = 144. __________(eq. 1)

Put the value of x.

We Can Write It As,

Use Splitting Middle Term Method.

Take Common.

So, Y = 9 Or 16,

Put the values Of Y in (eq. 1)

### x = 16.

So, Your Numbers Are 9 and 16.
