Answer:Two such numbers are 10 , 2 .Step-by-step explanation:Here, the question is INCOMPLETE.Here is the Complete question:One number is 1/5 of another number. The sum of the two numbers is 12. Find the two numbers. Use a comma to separate your answers.We can solve the given problem as follows:Here, : One number is 1/5 of another number.Let one such number = m⇒ The other number = 1/5 (m)Sum of both the given number = 12[tex]\implies m + \frac{1}{5} m = 12\\\implies \frac{5m + m}{5} = 12\\\implies \frac{6m}{5} = 12[/tex]or, 6 m = 12 x (5) = 60or, m = 60 / 6 = 10or, m = 1 0Hence, the first number = m = 10Second number is [tex]\frac{1}{5} m = \frac{1}{5} \times 10 = 2[/tex]Hence, two such numbers are 10 , 2 .
