For each call of the method below, write the output that is produced, as it would appear on the console:

public static void mystery(int x, int y) {
    if (x > y) {
        x = x - 5;
        y = y + 5;
    if (x < y) {
    } else {
        x = y * 2;
    System.out.println(x + " " + y);

(Do not put quotes around your answers.)

mystery(4, 7);
mystery(3, 3);
mystery(10, 5);
mystery(20, 4);
mystery(1, 1);
