Find two

Find two consecutive natural numbers whose product is 1 larger than their sum. Searched numbers expressed by a fraction whose numerator is the difference between these numbers and the denominator is their sum.

Correct result:

a =  2
b =  3

Solution:


Our quadratic equation calculator calculates it.

b=a+1=2+1=3
