The product of two integers is 240. One number is three more than nine times the other. Find the numbers.

I am stumped. Please help!

I figured it out! The answer ended up being 5, 48.
Thanks!

How did you figure it our: trial and error?

let number = n; then n(9n + 3) = 240
Is that how you got it?
