That's a good question. I used trial and error, but there should be a way to solve this algebraically.

If you want to solve it algebraically, simply use two variables x1, and x2 such that x1 represents the tens place, and x2 the ones place. Then, we can make the equations\[\begin{matrix}x_1 +x_2=12 \\ 10x_1 + x_2 = 10x_2 + x_1 +18 \end{matrix}\] Then, using simple algebra, this can be solved for \[\begin{matrix} x_1 = 7 \\x_2 = 5 \end{matrix}\] Giving us the original number: 75.
