#### Number in Generalised Form

A number is said to be in a generalised form if it is expressed as the sum of the products of its digits with their respective place values.

##### Two-digit Numbers

Consider a 2-digit number having the digit a at its tens place and the digit b at its units place. This number is (10a + b), where a can be any whole number from 1 to 9 and b can be any whole number from 0 to 9.
Examples:

• (i) 36 = 10 x 3 + 6
• (ii) 74 = 10 x 7 + 4
• (iii) 90 = 10 x 9 + 0
• (iv) 99 = 10 x 9 + 9
##### Three-digit Numbers

Consider a 3-digit number having a, b, c as its hundreds digit, tens digit and unit digit respectively.
This number is (100a + 10b + c), where a can be any whole number from 1 to 9, b can be any whole number from 0 to 9 and c can be any whole number from 0 to 9.
Example:
(i) 137 = 100 x 1 + 10 x 3 +7

In a 2-digit number, the units digit is four times the tens digit and the sum of the digits is 10. Find the number.
Solution: Let the tens digit be x.
Then, the units digit = 4x.
x + 4x = 10
5x = 10, x = 2.
Tens digit = 2 and units digit = (4 x 2) = 8.
Hence, the required number is (10 x 2 + 8) = 28.

### How can a 3-digit number in generalized form be written using the concepts of exercise 16.1 of 8th Maths?

We can write a three digitsâ€™ number as:
Let number is abc, then we can write
100a + 10b + c
