Set up 2 equations: x*y=1536 x+y=-16 (based on your wording?) You know that x = 1536/y, plug it into the second equation and solve for y. Then take that value and get the value for x.

x and y are just what we call the first and second numbers that you're working with. When you plug that new value of x into the second equation, you get 1536/y + y = -16. You can now multiply every term by y to eliminate the fraction, and solve the quadratic to get the values of y.

u need to use x-y=-6 because if u use x+y=-16, the quadratic u get wont have real solution
