    I need a program that will allow the user to input two numbers in the range of 1 to 120. The program would then take the two numbers and subtract the larger number from the smaller number. The number they equals would represent x in the equation .84x which would equal the % of the lower number then appearing. The percentage of the other number coming up would be 100% minus the percentage of the higher number coming up.

    So say the first number they enter is "n" and the second is "x", its not possible to do % of "n" showing up equals .84(n-x) and then using the remaining percent for the second number x.
