    What number, when added to a number 10 times as big, gives a number that, when its right-hand digit is multiplied by four and added to the result of the above, gives 1000?

    88

    88+880=986

    986+4*6=986+32=1000

    Well done!

    I'll have to take some marks off for the typos in your solution, but the number 88 is correct.
