    Let x, y be the 2 numbers & x>y, then

    x-y=4.56

    =>

    x=4.56+y

    for a given value of  y in R there always a value of x

    to correspond to it & satisfying the equation. Thus

    there are infinitely many (x,y) as the solutions.

    For example, taking y=3.56, then x=8.12, etc.

    There is no integral solutions of x & y, for

    x=114/25+y=4+14/25+y & 14/25 will never

    be an integer.

    If complex numbers are considered, then

    y=a+bi=> x=(4.56+a)+bi, where a,b are in R.

    there are also infinitely many solutions of (x,y).

    x - y = 4.56

    If x = 10, y = 5.44

    If x = z, y = z - 4.56

    0, 4.56

    -4.56, 0

    etc

    Choose any number, then add or subtract 4.56

    zero and 4.56

    1 and 5.56

    2 and 6.56

    3.14 and 7.70

    ... etc, to infinity

    There is an infinite number of solutions.

    Just pick one number, add 4.56 to it, and that's your second:

    2 and 6.56
