    for problems like this, it is best to assign a variable (like 'x') to the unknown number. so, lets call the unknown number x. now, what will the other number be in terms of x?

    it is best to guide the asker of a question to the solution rather than just provide the answer directly.

    since you have provided the answer, you could at least explain to esther772 exactly how you got there.
