4 digit number derived from a single digit (Posted on 2018-02-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A number consisting of 2 identical digits, say xx
is multiplied by 99.

Write down the product P, given its tens digit (i.e. 3rd from the left) is y.

P&P only.

          xx00 - xx = (x, x-1, 10-(x+1), 10-x)

If 10-(x+1)=y  => 10-x=y+1x-1=8-y; x=9-y

P= (9-y,8-y,y,y+1)


99*77: x=7: y=10-(x+1)=2
P= (9-2, 8-2, 2, 2+1) = 7623
