Two numbers with a difference of 5 have a product of 6800. x and (x + 5) are our numbers. Let's multiply them together. (x) (x+5) = x2 + 5x That is equal to the 6800 specified. x2 + 5x = 6800 >> x2 + 5x  6800 = 0 (x + 85) (x  80) = 0 x + 85 = 0, so x = 85 (this in not a correct answer  it has the wrong sign) x  80 = 0, so x = 80 (a correct answer, and one of the two numbers we need) Since x = 80, x + 5 = 85 Our numbers are 80 and 85. Let's check. 80 times 85 = 6800. Our work checks.
