Why should we divide by 9?

Can you please explain me now?

Sai said:   2 years ago
15+12 = 27 (3 * 9 =27)
44+28 = 72 (8 * 9 =72)
64+53 = 117(13 * 9=117).

In the above question, the answer multiplies with 9.

Hai, I solve this problem in another way. But, I don't know this is correct or not.
3+5 = 8.
8+5 = 13.

I want this answer is correct or not?
