Can anyone help me with this problem? Five twodigit numbers are multiples of the products of their digits. Four of these numbers are 11, 12, 24, and 36. Find the fifth number.

Let x be the first digit (tens place) and y be the second digit (ones place). Since it is stated that there are only 5 such numbers, then we must exclude y = 0. We then require: where and We see that y may be 1, 2 or 5 when x = 1, so We see that y may be 4 when x = 2, so We see that y may be 6 when x = 3, so Examination of the remaining values of x produce no other numbers satisfying the given conditions.
