**Reiny**, Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 7:26pmI think you have a typo

If by "When I subtract the three lesser number from greater number" you meant

"When I subtract the lesser number from greater number" then the question is easy

x + y = 123

x - y = 45

add them

2x = 168

x = 84

sub that back in the first equation,

y = 39

the two numbers are 84 and 39

check: 84+39 = 123

84-39 = 45

Yeah!
