if the tens digit x and the units digit y of a positive integer n are reversed, the resulting integer is 9 more than n. What is y in terms of x?

Well I thought of 12 and 21. so y=x+1

I only need to show 1 case to prove it right?

10x + y = n
10y + x = n+9

Solve this equation x = (n-1)/11 and
y = (n+10)/11
= (n-1)/11 + 1
= x + 1

E

1. Since the difference between the two numbers is less than 10, the difference between the tens digits must be 1 or 0. Since it cannot be 0, it is 1.

2. yx > xy. So y>x.

Combining 1 and 2, y = x+1

Original no. is xy . Number after interchanging is yx. Now as per the Q.
10x+y+9=10y+x
=> 9y=9x+9
=> y=x+1
