Two numbers are each multiplied by themselves to give two new numbers. The difference between these two new numbers is less than ten; the difference between the two original numbers was one.

The two original numbers added together was more than 7. What is one of the original numbers?

Let x and y represent the first two numbers

Let a and b represent the two new numbers

xy=ab

a-b < 10

x-y = 1

x + y > 7

Am i on the right path?

What do I do next?
