(2) 18,27

The numbers are

First number = 18

Second number = 27

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

• Two numbers are in the ratio 2:3

• If 9 is added to each they will be in the ratio = 3:4

Find :

• The two numbers

Solution :

Let,

First number = 2x

Second number = 3x

9 is added to each number

So,

First number = 2x + 9

Second number = 3x + 9

They will be in the ratio = 3:4

According to question :

⇒ 4 (2x + 9) = 3 (3x + 9)

⇒ 8x + 36 = 9x + 27

⇒ 8x – 9x = 27 – 36

⇒ – 1x = – 9

⇒ 1x = 9

⇒ x = 9

First number = 2x

⇒ 2 (9)

⇒ 2 × 9

⇒ 18

Second number = 3x

⇒ 3 (9)

⇒ 3 × 9

⇒ 27

Therefore,

First number = 18

Second number = 27

• Two numbers are in the ratio 2:3
• If 9 is added to each they will be in the ratio 3:4

Let,

• First Number = x
• Second Number = y

A/C to question,

==> x : y = 2 :3

==> x/y = 2/3

==> 3x – 2y = 0 (1)

Again,

==> (x+9) : (y+9) = 3:4

==> (x+9)/(y+9) = 3/4

==> 4x – 3y = 27 – 36

==> 4x – 3y = – 9(2)

Multiply by 4 in equ(1) & 3 in equ(2)

• 12x – 8y = 0
• 12x – 9y = -27

________________Sub. its

==> -8y + 9y = 27

==> y = 27

keep value of y in equ(1)

==> 3x – 2*27 = 0

==> 3x = 54

==> x = 54/3

==> x = 18

• First Number be = 18
• Second Number be = 27
