Let's use algebra to solve this problem. Let x be Sara's number, then Gina's number is x + 2. We are given that the sum of their numbers is 68. So we can write the equation:

x + (x + 2) = 68

Now, combine the terms with x:

2x + 2 = 68

Subtract 2 from both sides:

2x = 66

Divide both sides by 2:

x = 33

Now that we have found Sara's number (x = 33), we can find Gina's number by adding 2:

Gina's number = 33 + 2 = 35

So, Sara's number is 33, and Gina's number is 35.
