Question

# The sum of a two digit number and the number obtained by reversing the digits is $$66$$. If the digits of the number differ by $$2$$, find the number. How many such numbers are there?

Solution

## Let unit be $$x$$The tens place digit will be $$x+2$$so, the number =$$(x+10)(x+2)$$=$$x+10x+20$$=$$11x+20$$If digits are reversedthen the number obtained=$$x+2+10x$$But given$$\begin{array}{l} 11x+20+11x+2=66 \\ 22x=66-22 \\ 22x=44 \\ x=2 \end{array}$$therefore required number=$$\begin{array}{l} 11x+20 \\ 11\times 2+20 \\ 22+20 \\ 42 \end{array}$$Maths
