Answer:The first number is 12, the second is 15.

Step-by-step explanation:One equation to solve this would be n+(n+3)=27

n+(n+3)=27

Simplified: 2n+3=27

2n+3=27

2n+3-3=27-3

2n=24

2n÷2=24÷2

n=12

When you plug

ninto the equation, you get 12+(12+3)=2712+(12+3)=12+15

12+15=27

So, the first number is 12 and the second is 15
