    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the first number be x .

    Therefore , the other number will be 3x.

    => 3x-x = 24

    => 2x = 24

    => x = 24/2

    => x = 12.

    Therefore , the first number = x = 12

    the second number = 3x = 3×12 = 36 .

    Hope it helps.

    Have a nice day !

    Answer:

    The numbers are 36 and 12.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the numbers be x and y.

    Acc. To the ques,

    x - y = 24 \:  \:  \:  \:  \:  \:  \: (i) \\ x = 3y

    using \: substitution \: method \\  \\ substitute \: x = 3y \: \:  \:  \: in \: eq \: (i)

    3y - y = 24 \\ 2y = 24 \\ y =  \frac{24}{2}  \\  \\ y = 12

    x = 3y \\ x = 3(12) \\ x = 36

    So, the numbers are 36 and 12.
