let the smaller number be represented by x and the larger number x+13 x+x+13=35                                                x+13=11+13=24 2x+13=35                                                   11+24=35 2x+13-13=35-13                         therefore the two numbers are11 and 24 2x=22 2x/2=22/2 x=11
