Step-by-step explanation:let the no.’s be x.

ratio = 9:13.

then,

9x – 13x = 8

-4x = 8

x = 8/-4

x = -2 .

then, 9x = 9×x = 9×(-2) = -18 ans.

13x = 13×x = 13×(-2) = -26 ans.

Step-by-step explanation:according to the question, the difference between two numbers is 8 and the numbers are in ratio 9 : 13.

let the numbers be 9x and 13x

therefore 13x – 9x = 8

>> 4x = 8

>> x = 8/4

>> x = 2

hence, the numbers are :-

9x = 9 × 2 = 18 and 13x = 13 × 2 = 26
