    Answer:

    according to the questions,

    two conditions are =

    x+y=51

    x=51-y_(1)

    2x-3y=12_(2)

    substituting value of x

    2(51-y)-3y=12

    102-2y-3y=12

    y=18

    finding value of x

    x=51-y

    x=51-18

    x=33

    two numbers are 18 n 33

    Answer:

    33 and 18

    Step-by-step explanation:

    let the numbers be x and y (x>y)

    x + y = 51

    2x – 3y = 12

    solving the two equations simultaneously

    x = 33

    y = 18
