The numbers are: (-12+square root of 171) and (-12-square root of 171)

10 and 17.1 is one possible pair of numbers. 3 and 57 is another.

218 − 47 = 171Therefore, 171 + 47 are the two numbers that add up to 218

171 cannot go into ANY two digit number - its smallest positive multiple is 171. Therefore the remainder must be the original 2 digit number. However, the question states that the remainder is 6. That is a contradiction. Consequently, there cannot be any solution to the question as stated.

I believe you would basically have to try out the divisions one by one - I am not aware of any great shortcut. You can do the divisions in Excel, using the mod() function. Another option is to write a short computer program that tests each of the divisions. (171 % 1, 171 % 2, 171 % 3... up to 171 % 171 - many programming language use the "%" sign for the remainder of a division). If you do the divisions by hand, you may notice certain patterns, and skip a few numbers in the divisions.
