1. A very magical teacher had a student select a two-digit number between 50 and 100 and write it on the board out of view of the instructor. Next, the student was asked to add 76 to the number, producing a three-digit sum. If the digit in the hundred’s place is added to the remaining two-digit number and this result is subtracted from the original number, the answer is 23, which was predicted by the instructor. How did the instructor know that the answer would be 23?
