The numbers should be 7X & X as it is given that quotient when dividing bigger number by smaller one = 7
Therefore:
7X^2 = 39375
X^2 = 5625
X = 75 and 7X = 525
Therefore sum of the 2 numbers = 75 + 525 = 600.

We can write : X x Y = 39375 and X/Y = 7
Solñving the system of the two equations, X=525 and Y=75
Then, X + Y = 600
the answer is 600
