and, second new number = 5x + 21  Question 3.
Sum of the digits of a two-digit number is 9. When we interchange the digits, it is found that the resulting new number is greater than the original number by 27. What is the two-digit number?
Solution.
Let the unit’s digit of the two-digit number be x.
Then, the ten’s digit of the two-digit number = 9 – x  Question 4.
One of the two digits of a two digit number is three times the other digit. If you interchange the digits of this two-digit number and add the resulting number to the original number, you get 88. What is the original number?

Let in the original number  Question 5.
Shobo’s mother’s present age is six times Shobo’s present age. Shobo’s age five years from now will be one third of his mother’s present age. What are their present ages?
Solution.
Let the present age of Shobo be x  year. Then, the present age of Shobo’s mother = 6x years.
Five years from now
Shobo’s age = (x + 5) years
According to the question, Hence, their present ages are 5 years and 30 years.
