A) 43, 30
B) 42, 39

Explanation:Let the marks secured by the two students are x and (x + 9)
Then sum of their marks = x + (x + 9) = 2x + 9
Given that (x + 9) was 56% of the sum of their marks
=>(x+9) = 56/100(2x+9)
=>(x+9) = 14/25(2x+9)
=> 25x + 225 = 28x + 126
=> 3x = 99
=> x = 33
Then (x + 9) = 33 + 9 = 42
Hence their marks are 33 and 42
