Lets Represent: x-first whole number y-second whole number

So the product of two whole numbers is 364 xy=364

The difference of the numbers is 15 x-y=15

To solve this problem, we must use substitution, you could pick any equation but i prefer the first one: xy=364 Divide both sides by y x=

Now substitute to the second equation

Multiply both sides by y to eliminate the denominator 364-y²=15y Rearrange the equation to Ax²+Bx=C y²+15y-364=0 Use factoring (y+28)(y-13)=0 y=-28; y=13

You can find x by using either of the 2 y values x-y=15 x-(-28)=15 x+28=15 x=-13
