let the 10 digit number be x
let the one digit number be y
x + y = 14 , y= 14  x
original number 10x + y
reversed number 10y + x
equation 10y +x = 10x +y +36
subsitute for y
10(14x) + x = 10x +14  x + 36
140  10x + x = 10x +14  x + 36
x = 5 y = 14  x
y = 14  5 = 9
original number is 10x + y
10(5) + 9 = 59posted by Anonymous
