    Answer:

    The smaller number is -8 and the bigger number is 6.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To represent the smaller number, we will use x.

    To represent the bigger number, we will use x + 14.

    Together, these two numbers make -2, so we can make an equation out of this and solve for x:

    x + x + 14 = -2

    2x + 14 = -2

        – 14     – 14

    2x = -16

    x = -8

    So, the smaller number is -8 and the bigger number is 6.

    Check:

    6 – (-8) = 14

    -8 + 6 = -2
