Let the smaller number be \(x\).

We have: \(5(x + x+2) = x(x+2) - 10\)

Simplifying, we have: \(10x+10 = x^2+2x-10\)

Converting the equation to quadratic form: \(x^2-8x-20=0\)

Factoring the equation: \((x+2)(x-10)=0\)

There are 2 values of \(x\) that work, 10 or -2, so there can be two sets: \(\color{brown}\boxed{10,12}\) or  \(\color{brown}\boxed{-2,0}\)
