The difference between a 2-digit number and the number obtained by interchanging its digits is 63.

Question:

The difference between a 2-digit number and the number obtained by interchanging its digits is 63. What is the difference between the digits of the number?

Solution:

Let the tens place digit be 'x' and the units place digit be 'y'.

∴ Number =  (10x + y)

Number obtained by interchanging the digits = (10y + x)

Given: (10x + y) - (10y + x) = 63

∴ 10x - x + y - 10 y = 63

9x - 9y = 63
9(x - y) = 63
x - y = 7

Therefore, the difference between the digits of the number is 7.
