=> Y = 67

Proof :

67 + 5 = 9 
     8

=> 72 = 9
       8

Let the initial number be x and the other number be x + 5
The other number = initial number + 5
                              = 8 x 9
                              = 72
The initial number = 72 - 5
                               = 67
Therefore, the initial number is 67 and the other number is 72.
