Set this up as a system of equations.

x + y = 60

x - y = 3

Solve for either x or y in one of the equations. It doesn't matter what you choose.

I'll solve for x in equation 2.

x - y = 3

x= y + 3

Now plug y + 3 in for x in the first equation. You get:

y + 3 + y = 60

Sove for y.

2y + 3 = 60

2y = 57

y = 28.5

Now plug this value into either equation and solve for x. I'll use equation 2.

x - 28.5 = 3

x = 31.5

So your answers should be 31.5 and 28.5.
