This is an interesting little question.   :)

 

Zep, the answer is 30 becasue the only numbers that work are 25 and 36.

 

\((The\;\;number\;\; is \;\;10a+b\\ where\\ 10a+b=\frac{ab}{\frac{a}{b}}\\ 10a+b=b^2\\ 10a=b^2-b\\ 10a=b(b-1)\\ \)

Also

0

 

 

The only numbers where b(b-1) is a multiple of 10 is  b=5 and b=6

 

 

You can take it from there. 

 

 

I've redone some of the latex, I hope it works this time.  I see Heueka has used Latex sucessfully since I last posted.
