The sum of the digits of a two-digit number is 15 and the difference between the digits is 3. What is the two-digit number?

Option :

Answer:Option 1

Explanation:

Solution:
Let the ten's digit be x and unit's digit be y.
Then, x + y = 15 and x - y = 3   or   y - x = 3.
Solving x + y = 15   and   x - y = 3, we get: x = 9, y = 6.
Solving x + y = 15   and   y - x = 3, we get: x = 6, y = 9.
So, the number is either 96 or 69.
Hence, the number cannot be determined.
