    Answer:

    The first number is 12, the second is 15.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    One equation to solve this would be n+(n+3)=27

    n+(n+3)=27

    Simplified: 2n+3=27

    2n+3=27

    2n+3-3=27-3

    2n=24

    2n÷2=24÷2

    n=12

    When you plug n into the equation, you get 12+(12+3)=27

    12+(12+3)=12+15

    12+15=27

    So, the first number is 12 and the second is 15
