    yeah :) the 2 digits and how u got them :) the only hint i can think of outside the question is that it's a simultaneous equation with 2 variables... quite obvious. my teacher asked us this and he wanted an answer in 5 minutes. a couple of people got the answer and explained it to me later but they didn't meet the time requirement so basically we all failed. he said he's going to bring such questions in our next class as a test... i need to get conversant with it.

    Start with \( 10x+y \)

    first number is in tens and second number is in ones... 10x + y... makes sense

    10x+y)/(x+y) = 6+ ( 5/(x+y) ) .... right?

    Okay there are two equations that you need to form: 1) \(10x+y = 6(x+y)+5 \implies 4x -5y =5 \) 2) \( 10x+y-10y-x = 18 \implies 9x-9y=18 \) Now, all you have to do is solve this, 5 mints is more than enough :)
