Let A be tens digit & B be units digit \(X = 10A + B\) After reversing digits, \(X _{new}\) \(= 10B + A\) Difference between \(X\) and \(X_{new}\) is \(9\), so I get following equation \((10A + B)  (10B + A) = 9\) \(9A – 9B = 9\) \(9(AB) = 9\) \(AB = 1\) \(A = B+1\) Since units digit X is +1 more than tens digit, I get following numbers 12, 23, 34, 45, 56, 67, 78, 89 IMO: D

(A) 5 (B) 6 (C) 7 (D) 8 (E) 9
First of all i didn't understand the question and when i did understood it, lot of time had passed, so marked it incorrect. Lets see, 10<n<100, digits of n are reversed, resulting number will be n+9 10x +y = 10y+x +9 9 (xy) = 9 xy = 1 This means that the difference between the tens digit and units digit is 1 I messed up where ??, i had to consider these as well 12 2334 4556 6778 89 Now if i took 98 it wont give 108 after reversing, so out

The two digit number (assume) = 10a+b then by the given condition 10a+b = 10b+a+9 (digits are reversed and 9 added) => 9a  9b = 9 => a  b =1
we have following number between 10 and 100 which satisfy above condition 12, 23 , 34, 45, 56,67,78,89

(A) 5 (B) 6 (C) 7 (D) 8 (E) 9 note pattern: 12/21, 23/32, 34/43... 12+11(n1)<100 11n<99 n<9 n=8 D

10A+B=n 10B+A=n+9
10B+A=10A+B+9 9B9A=9 BA=1 Integers between 11 and 99, that have unit digit 1 greater than tenths digit12, 23, 34, 45 ..... = total 8
Ans  D  Kudos if helpful!
