$\ Let \ smaller\ number \ be \ x$ $\ then \ according \ problem, \ other \ number \ = x+4$ $\ given \ thesum \ of \ number = 60$ $\therefore \ x+(x+4) =60$ $\implies 2x+4=60 \implies 2x=60-4=56$ $\therefore x=\frac{ 56 }{ 2 }=28$ $\therefore smaller \ number \ is \ 28\\ and \ other \ number\ i.e. (x+4) \ is \ 32$
