Answer:according to the questions,

two conditions are =

x+y=51

x=51-y_(1)

2x-3y=12_(2)

substituting value of x

2(51-y)-3y=12

102-2y-3y=12

y=18

finding value of x

x=51-y

x=51-18

x=33

two numbers are 18 n 33

Answer:33 and 18

Step-by-step explanation:let the numbers be x and y (x>y)

x + y = 51

2x – 3y = 12

solving the two equations simultaneously

x = 33

y = 18
