| let one number x, and the second y, then their sum (x + y).

Then, by the condition of the problem, the sum is more than one of them by 26, we have (x + y) – x = 26, hence y = 26

And the second condition of the sum is more than the second number by 9, then (x + y) – y = 9, hence x = 9

We have an answer to the problem. The first number is 9 and the second is 26
