Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The numbers would be 98 and 72. You can solve this by using simultaneous equations: x + y = 170 x  y = 26 Now add the two equations to get: 2x = 196 x = 98 Now substitute x=98 into one of the equations to get the other numberfor example, x + y = 170 98 + y = 170 y = 72
