Suppose the numbers are A and B.

A + B = 9 and A - B = 5

(A + B) + (A - B) = 9 + 5

therefore 2A = 14, so A = 7, and B = 7 - 5 = 2

In a column, Write down all the number pairs from 1 to 8 that add up to nine.

Put the largest number first.

Subtract each pair of numbers and when you find a number where the answer is 5 that is your answer.
