When a two-digit number is multiplied by sum of its digits, the product is 715 but when the reverse of a two-digit number is multiplied by sum of its digits the product obtained is 99 less, The sum of the digits of a number is
Let the two-digit number be (10x+y), then (10x+y)*(x+y)=715 ⇒ 10x² + y² +11xy = 715 ---(i)
And (10y+x)*(x+y)=(715-99) ⇒ x² + 10y² + 11xy = 616 --- (ii)
Subtracting eqn (ii) from (i), we get x² - y² = 11
⇒ (x+y) (x-y) = 11
As 11 is prime, only product 11*1 = 11 is possible
.'. (6+5) (6-5) = 11, so x=6, y=5
Hence, the number is 65 and sum of the digits=11
Alternate Method:
If x and y are the digits of a number, then (10x+y)*(x+y)=715 and (10y+x)*(x+y)=616
As we know (x+y) is common factor in both the equations.
Only 11 is the common factor.
Therefore sum (x+y)=11
Correct Option 7)
mathematics never dies because it always stays in the minds and souls of people who love mathematics.
Those people will not let maths die instead they will die.................
