Answer:4

Step-by-step explanation:

let them number be y

y^2=y+12

y^2-y-12=0

y^2+3y-4y-12=0

y(y+3)-4(y+3)=0

(y+3)(y-4)=0

y+3=0 y-4=0

y=-3 y=4

There number is 4

Answer:Since the largest number is 12 more than it, the larger number is x+12. Their sum is x+(x+12)=2x+12. 2x+12=48, since their sum is 48, so 2x=48-12=36, and x=36/2=18. Since x is 18, x+12=30, which are the value of the 2 numbers.
