Here in the question it is given that Anita had to do a multiplication Instead of taking 35 as one of the multipliers she took 53 As a result the product went up by 540.

Now first let the number that Anita wanted to multiply be 'X'.

She wanted to multiply this number by 35 to find the value of 35x.

But instead of taking 35 she takes it as 53 and finds the value of 53x.

And in the question it is given that the difference between the value that she got (53X) and what she was expected to get (35X) is 540.

It means that,

$

\Rightarrow 53x - 35x = 540 \\

\Rightarrow 18x = 540 \\

\Rightarrow x = \dfrac{{540}}{{18}} = 30 \\

\therefore x = 30 \\

$

Now we have to find out the new product. It means that we have to find out the value of 53x.

i.e. $53 \times 30 = 1590$.
