Let the ten’s digit be x, then unit’s digits = (14/x)

Then, the number is (10x + 14/x)

When 45 is added to the number, the digits get interchanged.

∴    10x + 14/x + 45 = 10 × 14/x + x

⇒  x2 + 5x – 14 = 0

⇒ (x+ 7)(x – 2) = 0

⇒ x = 2

And  x = - 7 (inadmissible)

Hence, the number is (10x + 14/x)

= (10 × 2 + 14/2)

= 27
