Let there be x successful candidates in the exam.

Unsuccessful candidates = 120 – x

Total score = 35 x 120

Total score is also equal to x * 39 + (120 – x) * 15

So, x = (35 * 120 – 120 * 15)/ 24 = 120 * 20 / 24 = 100

Let the number be xy. So 10 x +y = k (x + y)

11 – k = 11- $\frac{10x+y}{x+y}$ = $\frac{11x + 11y – 10x – y}{x+y}$

= $\frac {10y + x}{x+y}$ which is inverse of the number divided by the sum of the digits.

Hence the required factor is 11 – k

On correction, total increase in marks = 45 – 15 = 30 marks.

Number of students = 30

So, increase in the average = 30/30 = 1 mark.
