Let the numbers x,y.

Sum of the  numbers = 1926

x+y = 1926 -----> (1)

the difference of the numbers 1328

x-y = 1328 --------> (2)

Add the equations (1) and (2)

x+y = 1926

x-y = 1328

__________

2x = 3254

x = 3254/2

x = 1627

From (1) ⇒1627+y = 1926

y = 1926-1627

y = 299

The numbers are  1627,  299.
