    Answer:

    X=17, Y=8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let one number be X and the other be Y.

    According to question,

    X+Y=25 ———————-(1)

    W have 2 cases

    1. If X>Y, then

    X= Y+9

    Substitute value of X in equation (1), we get,

    Y+9+Y=25

    2Y+9=25

    2Y=25-9

    2Y=16

    Y=8

    X=Y+9=17

    2.  If Y>X, then

    Y=X+9

    Substitute value of Y in equation (1), we get,

    X+X+9=25

    2X+9=25

    2X=16

    X=8

    Y=X+9=17
