in the original number, let the unit digit be x, then tens digiti be y
so the original number is 10y + x
where x+y = 7
the number reversed will be 10x + y
new number - old number = 9
10x + y - (10y + x) = 9
9x - 9y = 9
or x-y = 1
2x = 8
x = 4, then y = 3
the number is 10y+x = 34
original number is 34
reversed number is 43
is the number increased by 9 ??? YES
is the sum of the digits 7 ??? YES
