    we need to find value of c we have 10a +b + 10b +a = 100a + 10a +c => 11a + 11b = 110a +c =>11(b -9a)=c c is obviously, a single digit integer. this will only be possible when LHS =0 (hope you understand this part) thus c=0 also, we see b-9a =0 =>only possibility is a=1, b=9

    my method indeed yielded a=1, b=9 and c=0 you can also verify 19 + 91 = 110 here, i have used the fact that AB mathematically is written as 10A+ B eg. 76 = 10(7) + 6. you must not be stuck here,comeon!
