The sum of two consecutive whole numbers is 35 , then find the numbers.

Solution-

Let the first whole number $=x$

Then, second number $=x+1$

According to question, $\quad x+x+1=35$

\begin{aligned} \text { or, } & 2 x+1=35 \\ \text { or, } & 2 x=35-1=34 \end{aligned}

or, $x=\frac{34}{2}=17$

$\therefore$ One number $=17$; other number $=17+1=18$
