Solution

## Hello student, Let the unit digit be X and ten 's digit be Y. So, original digit be ( X+10.Y) , And by reversing the digit we get (Y+10.x) SO ACCORDINGTO THE QUESTION (X+10Y)+(Y+10X) = 66 11X+11Y = 66 11(X+Y) = 66 X+Y = 66/11 X+Y = 6 ------------------- 1 And, since digits differ by 2 So, X-Y = 2 --------------- 2 Adding 1 and 2 equations we get 2X = 8 X = 8/2 so, X = 4 And, puttingvalue of Xin equation 1 X + Y = 6 4 + Y = 6 Y = 6 - 4 Y = 2 Therefore, number is given by putting value of X & Y Hence, number is ( 4+10*2) = 24... it can also be its reverse. that is 42 so there are two numbers with the conditions given in question they are 24 and 42
