If the digits are a and b,
8(a+b) = 8+10a+b
8a+8b = 8+10a+b
7b  2a = 8
The number is 32

How it comes 32

maths  Reiny, Friday, February 1, 2013 at 8:44am
from the above
7b  2a = 8
2a = 7b8
a = (7b8)/2
but a and b can only be a numbers between 0 and 9
and since 7b8 is divided by 2, the expression
7b8 must be even.
This means that b must be an even number
let's try values of b
let b=2
a = (148)/2 = 3
giving us 32
let b=4
a = (288)/2 = 10 , but that is too large, and will only get larger if we pick higher values of b
so all done, the number is 32
