The difference of two natural numbers is 5 and the difference of their reciprocals is 5/14. Find the numbers.
Let a and b be two natural number such that, a>b
Putting the value of a from equation (1) in equation (2), we get
⇒b=2 or b=−7
Since, b is natural number, neglecting the value, b = −7,we get
So, the required natural numbers are 7 and 2.
