Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15652)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!let x = the 10's digit let y = the units then 10x+y = the number : "a two digit number is such that it is equal to 4 times the sum of it's digits." 10x + y = 4(x+y) 10x + y = 4x + 4y 10x - 4x = 4y - y 6x = 3y simplify, divide by 2 2x = y : "when 27 is added to the number the total is equal to the same number when it's digits are interchanged." 10x + y + 27 = 10y + x 10x - x + 27 = 10y - y 9x + 27 = 9y simplify, divide by 9 x + 3 = y Replace y with 2x, (from the 1st statement) x + 3 = 2x 3 = 2x - x x = 3 y = 2(3) y = 6 and 36 is the number : : Check this in the 1st statement: a two digit number is such that it is equal to 4 times the sum of it's digits. 36 = 4(3+6); confirms our solutions
