One number is five more than another and their sum is three less than three times the smaller.
Let the first number be A
Let the second number be B
(A+B) = 3A -3......(2) [Since, A is the smaller number and B is 5 more than A]
Substituting Equation (1) in (2)
(Adding 3 to both sides)A+ A+5 + 3 =3A
(Subtracting 2A from both sides)A=8
Hence the numbers are 8 and 13
