Q 7) Sarah intended to multiply a twodigit number and a threedigit number, but she left out the multiplication sign and simply placed the twodigit number to the left of the threedigit number, thereby forming a fivedigit number. This number is exactly nine times the product Sarah should have obtained. What is the sum of the twodigit number and the threedigit number?
