    Let the two digit number be 10A + B.

    Then, from "If the tens digit of a two-digit number is subtracted from the units digit, the difference is 8.", or
    B - A = 8.

    From "The number with the digits reversed is 10 more than nine times the units digit of the original number.", 10B + A = 9B + 10.

    Substituting A = B - 8 into 10B + A = 9B + 10 yields 10B + B - 8 = 9B + 10 or 11B - 8 = 9B + 10 or 2B = 18 making B = 9.

    From B - A = 8, 9 - A = 8 making A = 1 or the number = 19.

    Let unit digit = x
    Then tens did it = 8+x
    Original no.is 10(8+x)+x
    80+10x+x=80+11x
    On reversing : 10x+8+x =11x+8
    11x+8=10+9x
    11x-9x=10-8
    2x=2
    X=1
    No.is 80+11x=80+11=91
