  1. Let x be the ones digit and y be the tens digit.

    Then

    Two digit number before reversing = 10y + x

    Two digit number after reversing = 10x + y

    As per the question (10y + x) + (10x + y) = 121

    ⇒11x + 11y = 121

    ⇒x + y = 11 …….(i)

    Since the digits differ by 3, so

    x – y = 3 ……….(ii)

    Adding (i) and (ii), we get

    2x = 14

    ⇒ x = 7

    Putting x = 7 in (i), we get

    7 + y = 11

    ⇒ y = 4

    Changing the role of x and y, x = 4 and y = 7

    Hence, the two-digit number is 74 or 47.
