    Answer:

    a = 129 and b = 28

    Step-by-step explanation:

    solution ,

    here ,

    Given , the sum of two numbers is 157 and

    one number is 101 more than other

    So , let’s assume the two numbers be a and b

    According to the question ,

    a+b=157______¡

    Again,

    a = 101 + b

    or,a – b = 101 ________¡¡

    Adding both equation’s

    a + b = 157

    + a – b = 101

    _______________

    2a = 258

    or, a = 258/ 2

    or, a = 129

    So, keeping the value of a in equation _____¡

    a + b = 157

    or, 129 + b = 157

    or, b = 157-129

    or, b = 28

    so the required number is 28 and 129
