1. Indicate your specific subject in the "School Subject" box, so those with expertise in the area will respond to the question.

Let one number = x and the other = y.

x + y = 7 2/8

x - y = 2 4/8

Add the two equations to find value of x.

2x = 9 6/8

Divide both sides by 2.

x = 4 7/8

Substitute the x value in either equation to find y.
