## Theorem

The $2$-digit positive integers which are divisible by both the sum and product of their digits are:

- $12, 24, 36$

## Proof

We have:

\(\displaystyle 12\) | \(=\) | \(\displaystyle 4 \times \paren {1 + 2}\) | |||||||||||

\(\displaystyle \) | \(=\) | \(\displaystyle 6 \times \paren {1 \times 2}\) |

\(\displaystyle 24\) | \(=\) | \(\displaystyle 4 \times \paren {2 + 4}\) | |||||||||||

\(\displaystyle \) | \(=\) | \(\displaystyle 3 \times \paren {2 \times 4}\) |

\(\displaystyle 36\) | \(=\) | \(\displaystyle 4 \times \paren {3 + 6}\) | |||||||||||

\(\displaystyle \) | \(=\) | \(\displaystyle 2 \times \paren {3 \times 6}\) |
