    5 and 13

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1) If we call the larger number x and the smaller y we can write two equations.

    y = x - 8 and x - 3=2y

    2) we can substitute the x-8 in for the y in the second equation.

    x-3=2 (x-8)

    3) by distributing and simplifying we find that x=13

    4) To find y we need to plug x back into the first equation.

    y=13-8

    y=5
