    The 2 number’s product  = 195 × 73 = 14235

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1 :

    Let x be the first number and y be the second number

    Given ,

    Sum of the 2 numbers = 268

    So x + y = 268  

    Difference of the 2 numbers = 122

    So x – y = 122

    Step 2 :

    Adding the 2 equations obtained in step 1 ,

    we have

    2 x = 390 = > x = 195

    x + y = 268  

    y = 268 – x = 268 – 195 = 73

    y = 73

    Product of x and y is 195 × 73 = 14235

    Step 3 :

    Answer

    The 2 number’s product  = 195 × 73 = 14235
