# easy problem about a 2-digit positive integer

If a two-digit positive integer has its digits reversed, the resulting integer differs from the original by 27. By how much do the two digits differ?

Here’s the scoop.

# the 2-digit positive integers problem

Each of x, y, and z is a 2-digit positive integer (in base ten), and:

1) 4x + y – 19z = 0

2) 2x + y – 14z = 0

Solve for x.

This problem (stated in terms of a, b, and c, and with base ten merely presumed), is on the web, among a set of tournament problems.
