Problem
Find the two -digit numbers which become nine times as large if the order of the digits is reversed.
Solution
The pair of numbers are and .
Notice that the sum of two numbers is 10 times of the smaller one. Let the smaller one be , the large one becomes . Then we have = +. It's obvious that and . Comparing the digits, we have , , , and .
Mistake Above Fix
The actual two numbers are , as mentioned above, but the second number is , not . Someone please fix.
