1. This is the original problem, and I came up with the above equations. The answer is 37, but I can't see how.

"You can represent the value of any two-digit number with the expression 10a + b, where a is the tens' place digit and b is the ones' place digit. For example, if a is 5 and b is 7, then the value of the number is 10(5) + 7, or 57. What two-digit number is described below?
-The ones' place digit is one more than twice the tens' place digit.
-The value of the number is two more than five times the ones' place digit."

Simplify and show: 2a-6(10a)-5a^2(2) ----------------- (2a-6)^2 This is my work but its not right. 10a-10a^2 -------- 2a-6 Then solve for a by setting numerator to zero. so I got this... 10a-10a^2=0 10a(1-a)=0 a=0, a=1 My book
