Method of solving this CAT Question from Percentages - Two digit numbers: This question is all about forming the right equations.

10a + b = 0.6x
10b + a = 1.6x
Subtracting one from the other, we have
9b - 9a = x or x = 9 (b - a)
x should be a multiple of 9.
10a + b = 3x/5 this implies that x should also be a multiple of 5.Or, x should be a multiple of 45
x should be equal to 45, ab = 27, ba = 72

The question is "The two-digit number formed by reversing the digits of ab is 60% more than x. Find x."
x should be equal to 45

Hence, the answer is 45.

Choice A is the correct answer.
