Answer:The original number formed is 86.

Step-by-step explanation:Let the two digits of two digit number be,

10th digit xand1st digit y.∴ x + y = 14

x = 14 – y

⇒ (1)The number formed is 10x + y

If the number formed by reversing the digits is 18 less than the original number,

On reversing the digit the number will be

10y + x

⇒ 10y + x + 18 = (10x + y)

⇒ 10y + x = 10x + y – 18

⇒ 10y – y + x – 10x = – 18

⇒ 9y – 9x = -18

⇒ (2)Now substituting the value of x from

(1)to(2)⇒ 9y – 9 (14 – y) = – 18

⇒ 9y – 126 + 9y = – 18

⇒ 18y = 126 – 18

⇒ 18y = 108

⇒ y = 108/18

## ⇒ y = 6

Thus 1st digit if the number is 6

Substituting the derived value of y in

(1)to derived value of x.⇒ x = 14 – y

⇒x = 14 – 6

## ⇒ x = 8

The 10th digit if two digit number is 8.The original number formed is 86.

On reversing the digits,

the number transform to 68, which is 18 less than original number

Let the ten’s place digit beand one’s place digit be.

xyAccording to first condition ,

According to the second condition ,

Add Eq (1) and Eq (2) .

Put the value of x in Eq (1) .

## ORIGINAL NUMBER = 86
