Le the digits be x and y. Hence the original number is = 10x + y. Since the digits add up to 8. Hence, x + y = 8 Again adding 16 to the original number we get - 10x + y + 16 This number is 3 times of the original number reversed 3(10y + x) Hence, 10x + y + 16 = 3 (10y +x) => 7x - 29y = -16 Replacing y = 8 - x, we have 7x - 29(8 - x) = -16 => x = 6, hence y = 8 - 6 = 2 Hence the original number is 10 * 6 + 2 = 62
