Question

# If from a two digits number, we subtract the number formed reversing its digits then the result so obtained is a perfect cube. How many such numbers are possible?Write all of them.

Solution

## let $$ab$$ is a two digit number.Then reversing number is $$ba$$$$ab-ba=(10a+b)-(10b+a)$$$$ab-ba=9(a-b)$$$$ab-ba$$ is perfect cube number and multiple of $$9$$So, perfect cube can be $$27$$, therefore, $$a-b=3$$For, bigger perfect cubes $$a-b$$ is two or three digit numbers which is not possible.In above equation, $$b=0$$ to $$6$$, for $$b>6$$, $$a$$ becomes double digit number.For $$b=0, a=3$$ and number is $$30$$For $$b=1, a=4$$ and number is $$41$$For $$b=2, a=5$$ and number is $$52$$For $$b=3, a=6$$ and number is $$63$$For $$b=4, a=7$$ and number is $$74$$For $$b=5, a=8$$ and number is $$85$$For $$b=6, a=9$$ and number is $$96$$So, these are possible numbers.Mathematics
