  1. let the unit digit be x
    let the tens digit be y

    then 10y + x = 8(x+y)
    10y + x = 8x + 8y
    2y = 7x
    y = 7x/2

    the number reversed would be 10x+y

    then 10y+x - (10x+y) = 45
    9y -9x = 45
    -x+y=5
    sub in the 1st equation
    -x + 7x/2 = 5
    -2x + 7x = 10
    x = 2
    then y = 7

    original number is 72
