Let x & y be the numbers then
Condition 1:
difference of numbers x& y =43
x - y = 43   ... ... ... . ( 1 )
Condition 2:
sum of numbers x& y =13
x + y = 13   ... ... ... . ( 2 )
Adding (1) & (2) we get
x - y + x + y = 43 + 13
2 x = 56
x = 56 2
x = 28
setting the value of x in (1), we get
28 - y = 43
y = 28 - 43
y = - 15
hence the **numbers are 28,−15
