Let $n$ is a number of two digits ,ten’s place $x$ and unit place is $y$.so $n=10x +y$.given that $s(n)$= sum of all digits $\Rightarrow s(n)=x+y$ and $p(n)$=product of all digits=$xy$

now the given condition is $n=s(n)+p(n)$

Can you now finish the problem ……….

From $n=s(n)+p(n)$ condition we have,

$n=s(n)+p(n)$ $\Rightarrow 10x+y=x+y+xy \Rightarrow 9x=xy \Rightarrow y=9$ and the value of$x$ be any digit….

Can you finish the problem……..

Therefore all two digits numbers are $19,29,39,49,59,69,79,89,99$ and sum=$19+29+39+49+59+69+79+89+99=531$
