    Answer: 5 and 3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    From the question,

    Let the first number be x

    And the second be y

    x + y= 8

    x- y= 2

    Add the equations

    x + y + x – y = 8 + 2

    2x= 10

    x=5

    Slot the value of x into any of the equations: x +y = 8

    5+ y= 8

    y= 8 – 5

    y = 3
