    Answer:

    73

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Well, let the tens place and ones place digits in the number be respectively    and   , which are each between 0 and 9 inclusive. Then the number itself is equal to  10+ . Now add 36 to the number, and we have  10++36=10+ , where the last part of the equality follows from the reversal of the digits.

    The above equation simplifies to  9+36=9 .

    This simplifies to  9(+4)=9 , or  +4= .

    We need a second equation in order to get a unique solution. The original question says that “the sum of the two-digit number is 10.” This is poorly-worded, but I think what it means is that the sum of the digits in the two-digit number is 10. If that’s true, then  +=10 . Since  +4=,  this becomes  2+4=10 . I.e.  2=6 , or  =3 . Thus  =+4=7.

    The number is 37. Check this answer:

    37+36=73

    which is indeed a reversal of the digits.
