We know that one of the digit be ‘x’

The other digit is 9-x

So, the two digit number is 10(9-x) + x

The number obtained after interchanging the digits is 10x + (9-x)

10(9-x) + x – 27 = 10x + (9-x)

Upon simplification,

90 – 10x + x – 27 = 10x + 9 – x

-10x + x – 10x + x = 9 – 90 + 27

-18x = -54

x = 54/18

= 9/3

= 3

The two digit number is 10(9-x) + x

Substituting the value of x we get,

10(9-x) + x

10(9 - 3) + 3

10(6) + 3

60+3

63

∴ The number is 63.
