Yesterday Professor Q rode on a bus with his friend. As soon as he got the tickets for himself and his friend, which were consecutively numbered with each of the tickets bearing a 5-digit number with no leading zero, he added the digits on them and told his friend that the sum of all ten digits was exactly 62.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

His logical friend asked him if the sum of the numbers on either of the tickets was by any chance 35. Professor Q answered his friend, whereby his friend immediately deduced the numbers on the bus tickets.

What were the numbers on the two bus tickets?
