You could appoach this one of two ways. First, it could be a two equation solution. You know that the product of the two numbers is 210 so your first equation would be x * y = 210 You also know that X and Y will only be one number apart, so your second equation could be y = x + 1 The you can subsitute what y equals into the first equation so x * (x+1) = 210 and proceed to solve this equation for X.

The second approach is just trial and error.
