**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 8:59pmlet the unit digit by x

let the tens digit be y

so x+y=9, both x and y being whole numbers

value of number = 10y+x

given: 10y+x = 12y

or x = 2y

back in the first:

x+y=9

2y+y=9

y=3, and thus x = 6

the number is 36

let's see you do the second question in the same way.
