In a two digit number, the units digit is two more than tens digit. Sum of the digits is equal to 1/4 of the whole number find the number.
Let x = ten's digit
Units digit = x+2
Number = 10x + (x+2) = 11x+2
Sum of the digits = x+x+2 = 2x+2
Given that 2x+2 = 1/4(11x+2)
Multiplying both sides by 4 we get
8x+8 = 11x+2
Transposing 11x and 8
8x-11x = 2 - 6
-3x = -6
x = 2 this is ten's digit
Unit's digit = x+2 = 2+2 = 4
Number = 11x+2 = 11*2+2 = 22+2 = 24

Directions: Solve the following word problems. Also write 5 examples of your own.
