Question 35: (Marks 4)

A two digit number is such that the product of its digits is 14. If 45 is added to the number; the digits interchange their places. Find the number.

**Answer :**

Let unit digit = x

Tens digit = y

∴ Number = 10y + x

10y + x + 45 = 10x + y

⇒ x – y = 5 ...(i)

and xy = 14 ...(ii)

Solving (i) and (ii)

x = 7, y = 2

⇒ a = –21d 1 22nd term = a + 21d

= –21d + 21d

= 0
