### In examples 1 to 4, out of four options, only one is correct. Write the correct answer.

1. Generalized form of a three-digit number xyz is

(a) x + y + z

(b) 100x + 10y + z

(c) 100z + 10y + x

(d) 100y + 10x + z

Ans: The correct answer is (b).

2. The usual form of 100a + b + 10c is

(a) abc

(b) cab

(c) bac

(d) acb

Ans: The correct answer is (d).

Because, Here a is in the hundreds place, c is in tens place, and b is in ones place.

3. If 5 × A = CA then the values of A and C are

(a) A = 5, C = 1

(b) A = 4, C = 2

(c) A = 5, C = 2

(d) A = 2, C = 5

Ans: The correct answer is (c).

Here 5 × A = CA where A is in ones place and C is in tens place

Therefore 5A = 10 × C + A

4A = 10C

2A = 5C

Hence A = 5 and C = 2

4. If 5 A + 25 is equal to B 2, then the value of A + B is

(a) 15

(b) 10

(c) 8

(d) 7

Ans: The correct answer is (a).

5A = 5 × 10 + A, as A is in ones place and 5 is in tens place

B2 = B × 10 + 2, as 2 is in ones place and B is in tens place

\[ \Rightarrow \] 5A + 25 = B2

A number should be substituted for A, so that on the RHS ones place will be 2

Add 7 in place of A,

\[ \Rightarrow \] 57 + 25 = 82

Hence A = 7, B = 8

So, A + B = 7 + 8 = 15

### In Examples 5 To 7, Fillin the Blanks to Make the Statements True.

5. The number ab – ba where a and b are digits and a > b is divisible by ________.

Ans: The difference between a two-digit number and the result of reversing its digits is always divisible by 9.

6. When written in the usual form 100a + 10c + 9 is equal to ________.

Ans: ac9

a is in 100s place, c is in 10s place, 9 is in ones place

7. If AB × B = 9B, then A = _________, B = _________.

Ans: 9,1

9 1 1 = 9 1

9 = 9

### In examples 8 to 10, state whether the statements are true (T) or false (F).

8. If abc, cab, bca are three digit numbers formed by the digits a, b, and c then the sum of these numbers is always divisible by 37.

Ans: True

Given abc + cab + bca can be written in expanded form,

\[ \Rightarrow \] (100 a + 10 b + c) + (100 c + 10 a + b) + (100 b + 10 c + a)

\[ \Rightarrow \] (100 a + 100 c + 100 b) + (10 b + 10 a + 10 c) + (c + b + a)

\[ \Rightarrow \] 100(a + c + b) + 10(b + a + c) + (c + b + a)

\[ \Rightarrow \] (100 + 10 + 1) (a + b + c)

\[ \Rightarrow \] (111) (a + b + c) = 37 (because 111 = 3 37)

9. Let ab be a two-digit number, then ab + ba is divisible by 9.

Ans: False

Given ab + ba can be written in expanded form,

\[ \Rightarrow \] (10 a + b) + (10 b + a)

\[ \Rightarrow \] 10(a + b) + (b + a)

\[ \Rightarrow \] (10 + 1)(a + b)

\[ \Rightarrow \] 11(a + b)

10. If a number is divisible by 2 and 4, then it will be divisible by 8.

Ans: False

12, 20, 28 that can be divided by 2 and 4, but is not divisible by 8.

11. A three-digit number 42x is divisible by 9. Find the value of x.

Ans: Since 42x is divisible by 9, the sum of its digits, i.e.

4 + 2 + x must be divisible by 9.

i.e. 6 + x is divisible by 9

i.e. 6 + x = 9 or 18, _____.

Since x is a digit, therefore 6 + x = 9 or, x = 3

12. Find the value of A and B if

\[\begin{align} & \text{4 1 A} \\ & \underline{\text{+ B 4}} \\ & \text{5 1 2} \\ \end{align}\]

Ans: From one's column A + 4 gives a number whose digit is 2. So, A = 8. The value of B can be obtained by solving 2 + B is a number whose one digit is 1. So,B = 9.

\[ \begin{align} & \text{4 1 8} \\ & \underline{\text{+ 9 4}} \\ & \text{5 1 2} \\

\end{align}\]

13. Suppose that the division x ÷ 5 leaves a remainder 4 and the division x ÷ 2 leaves a remainder 1. Find the ones digit of x.

Ans: Since x ÷ 5 leaves a remainder 4, so one digit of x can be 4 or 9. Also, since x ÷ 2 leaves a remainder 1, so one digit must be 9 only.

14. If 756x is divisible by 11, where x is a digit find the value of x

Ans: For a number to be divisible by 11

Sum of digit in odd places- Sum of digit in even places = multiple of 11

Sum of digit in odd places= 7+6

Sum of digit in odd places= 5+x

Sum of digit in odd places- Sum of digit in even places =13-(5+x)=8-x

Now (x – 8) should be equal to 0 or a multiple of 11 (i.e. 11, 22,33, ..., etc.)

x – 8 = 0

x = 8 or x – 8 = 11

x = 11 + 8 = 19

Since x is a digit so it can take values from 0 – 9

Hence x = 8

Required number is 7568.

We can write it as 1000 \[ \times \] a + 100 \[ \times \] 0 + 10 \[ \times \] b + c i.e. a0bc, which is the usual form.

4. Let abc be a three-digit number. Then, abc – cba is not divisible by

(a) 9

(b) 11

(c) 18

(d) 33

Ans: (c) Given, abc is a three-digit number.

Then, abc = 100a + 10b + c

and cba = 100c + 10b + a

abc -eba = (100a + 10b + c)- (100c + 10b + a)

= 100a – a + 10b – 10b + c -100

= 99a – 99c = 99 (a -c)

= abc-cba is divisible by 99.

\[ \Rightarrow \] abc – cba is divisible by 9,11,33, but it is not divisible by 18.

5. The sum of all the numbers formed by the digits x, y, and z of the number xyz is divisible by

(a) 11

(b) 33

(c) 37

(d) 74

Ans: (c) We have, xyz + yzx + zxy

= (100x + 10y + z) + (100y + 10 z+ x) + (100z+ 10x + y) …(i)

= 100x + 10x + x + 10y + 100y + y + z+ 100z+ 10Z

= 111x + 111y + 111z = 111 (x + y + z)

= 3 \[ \times \] (37) \[ \times \] (x + y + z)

Hence, Eq. (i) is divisible by 37, but not divisible by 11,33 and 74.

6. A four-digit number aabb is divisible by 55. Then, possible value(s) of b is/are

(a) 0 and 2

(b) 2 and 5

(c) 0 and 5

(d) 7

Ans: (c) It is given that aabb is divisible by 55. Then, it is also divisible by 5.

Now, if a number is divisible by 5, then its unit digit is either 0 or 5. Hence, the possible values of b are 0 and 5.

7. Let abc be a three-digit number. Then, abc + bca + cab is not divisible by

(a) a + b + c

(b) 3

(c) 37

(d) 9

Ans: (d) We know that the sum of three-digit numbers taken in cyclic order can be written as 111 (a + b + c).

i.e. abc + pea + cab = \[ 3 \times \] \[ 37 \times \] (a + b + c).Hence, the sum is divisible by 3, 37 and (a + b + c) but not divisible by 9.

8. A four-digit number 4ob5 is divisible by 55. Then, the value of b-a is

(a) 0

The difference of sum of its digits in odd places and sum of its digits in even places is either 0 or multiple of 11.i.e. (4 + b) – (a + 5) is 0 or a multiple of 11, if

4+b-a-5 = 0

\[ \Rightarrow \] b-a = 1

9. If abc is a three-digit number, then number abc -a-b-c is divisible by

(a) 9

(b) 90

(c)10

(d) 11

Ans: (d) We have, abc= 100a + 10b+c

abc – a – b-c = (100a + 10b + c)-a – b-c = 100a – a + 10b – b = 99a + 9b = 9(11a + b)

Hence, the given number abc – a – b-c is divisible by 9.

10. A six-digit number is formed by repeating a three-digit number. For example, 256256, 678678, etc. Any number of this form is divisible by

(a) 7 only

(b) 11 only

(c) 13 only

(d) 1001

Ans: (d) A six-digit number which is formed by repeating a three-digit number is = abcabc.

abcabc = 100000a + 10000b + 1000c + 100a + 10b + c

= a(100000 + 100) + b(10000 + 10) + c (1000 + 1)

= 1001 (a × 100 + b × 10 + c)

Therefore, A six-digit number which is formed by repeating a three-digit number is divisible by 1001

11. If the sum of digits of a number is divisible by three, then the number is always divisible by

(a) 2

(b) 3

(c) 6

(d) 9

Ans: (b) A six-digit number which is formed by repeating a three-digit number is = abcabc.

Abcabc = 100000a + 10000b + 1000c + 100a + 10b + c

= a(100000 + 100) + b(10000 + 10) + c (1000 + 1)

= 1001 (a × 100 + b × 10 + c)

Therefore, A six-digit number which is formed by repeating a three-digit number is divisible by 1001. Hence it is divisible by 3

12. If x +y + z = 6 and z is an odd digit, then the three-digit number xyz is

(a) an odd multiple of 3

(b) an odd multiple of 6

(c) an even multiple of 3

(d) an even multiple of 9

Ans: (a) We have, x + y+ z= 6 and z is an odd digit. Since the sum of the digits is divisible by 3, it will also be divisible by 2 and 3 but the unit digit is odd, so it is divisible by 3 only. Hence, the number is an odd multiple of 3.

13 If 5A + 53 = 65, then the values of A and B is

(a) A = 2,8 = 3

(b) A = 3,8 = 2

(c)A = 2,8 = 1

(d)A=1,8 = 2

Ans: given, 5 A + B 3 = 65

\[ \begin{bmatrix} 5 & A \\ +B & 3 \\ 6 & 5 \end{bmatrix} \]

In the first or 1’s column, A + 3 = 5 A is a digit so the value is taken from 0 to 9. If we take the maximum value 9, Then, \[ A + 3 = 9 + 3 = 12 \ne 5 \]

Therefore, A = 5 -3 = 2;

In the second or 10’s column, If A = 2 , Hence there is no carry from A + 3. Therefore, B = 6 5 = 1 Hence, A =2 and B = 1.

14. If A3 + 8B = 150, then the value of A + B is

(a) 13

(b) 12

(c) 17

(d) 15

Ans: (a) We have, A3+ 8B = 150

Here, 3 + B = 0, so 3 + B is a two-digit number whose unit’s digit is zero.

3+B = 10 \[ \Rightarrow ~ \] B = 7

: Now, considering ten’s column, A+ 8 + 1 = 15

= A + 9 = 15

\[ \Rightarrow ~ \] A = 6

Hence, A+B=6+7 = 13

15. If 5A x A = 399, then the value of A is

(a) 3

(b) 6

(c) 7

(d) 9

Ans: (c) We have, 5A \[ \times \] A = 399

Here, \[ A \times A= 9 \] i.e. \[ A \times A \] is the number 9 or a number whose unit’s digit is 9. Thus, the number whose product with itself produces a two-digit number having its unit’s digit as 9 is 7.

i.e. \[ A \times A = 49 \]

\[ \Rightarrow ~ \] A=7

Now, \[ 5 \times A + 4 = 39 \]

\[ \Rightarrow ~ 5 \times \] 7+4 = 39

So, A satisfies the product.

Hence, the value of A is 7.

16. If 6A \[ \times B \Rightarrow ~ \] 488, then the value of A-B is

(a)-2

(b) 2

(c) -3

(d) 3

Ans: (c) Given,\[ 6A \times B = A86 \]

Let us assume, A = 1 and S = 3 Then, LHS = 61 $\times $ 3 = 183 and RHS = 183 Thus, our assumption is true. A-6 = 1-3=-2

17. Which of the following numbers is divisible by 99?

(a) 913462

(b) 114345

(c) 135792

(d) 3572406

Ans: (b) Given a number is divisible by 99.

Now, going through the options, we observe that the number (b) is divisible by 9 and 11 both as the sum of digits of the number is divisible by 9 and sum of digits at odd places = sum of digits at even places.

40. If a number a is divisible by b, then it must be divisible by each factor of b.

Ans: True

Given, a is divisible by b.

Let b = \[p_{1} \times p_{2}\], where p1 and p2 are primes.

Since, a is divisible by b, a is a multiple of b

i.e. a = mb

\[ \Rightarrow a = m (p_{1})(p_{2}) \]

or a= \[cp_{2}\]=\[dp_{1}\], where \[ c = mp_{1}\], \[d = mp_{2}\]

\[ \Rightarrow \] a is a multiple of \[p_{1}\] as well as \[p_{2}\].

Hence, a is divisible by each factor b.

41. If AB × 4 = 192, then A + B = 7.

Ans: False

From the question,

B + 4 is a two-digit number with unit digit 2.

Therefore, B = 3 or 8. For B =3, (A × 4) + 1 19

Hence B =8 and A = 4 Then A + B = 12.

42. If AB + 7C = 102, where B ≠ 0, C ≠ 0, then A + B + C = 14

Ans: True

From the question, B + C = 2 or a two-digit number with unit digit 2 and less than 14.

Therefore, B = 1, 5 ,7 and C =1 , 5, 7

B =1 and C =1 is not suitable for the question.

Hence, For B= 5, C =7 and A = 2 For B =7, C=5 and A = 2

43. If 213×27 is divisible by 9, then the value of x is 0.

Ans: False

Given, 213x27 is divisible by 9, so the sum of its digits is also divisible by 9.

i.e. 2+1+ 3+ x +2 +7 =0, 9,18, 27, 36,…

\[ \Rightarrow \] x+ 15= 0,9,18,27,36,…

\[ \Rightarrow \] x + 15 = 18 [x is a digit of a number]

\[ \Rightarrow \] x= 3

44. If N ÷ 5 leaves remainder 3 and N ÷ 2 leaves remainder 0, then N ÷ 10 leaves remainder 4

Ans: \[N \div 5 = Remainder 3 \]

\[ N \div 2 = Remainder 0 \]

\[N \div 10 = Remainder 4 \]

N=5n+3 Where, n =0, 1, 2, 3, ....

According to the question, N \[ \div \] 2 leaves remainder 0.

Therefore N is an even number and n =1, 3, 5, 7, ... If we put the values of n in equation N=5n+3,

Then, N = 8, 18, 28, …

If we divide these values of N by 10 then it leaves the remainder 8.

45. Find the least value that must be given to number a, so that the number 91876a2 is divisible by 8.

Ans: Given, 91876a2 is divisible by 8.

Since, we know that, if a number is divisible by 8, then the number formed by the last 3 digits is divisible by 8.

So, 6a2 is divisible by 8.

Here, a can take values from 0 to 9.

For a = 0, 602 is not divisible by 8.

For a = 1, 612, which is not divisible by 8.

For a = 3, 632 is divisible by 8.

Hence, the minimum value of a is 3 to make 91876a2 divisible by 8.

46. If \[\frac{\overset{\text{1}}{\mathop{\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }}}\,\overset{\text{ P}}{\mathop{\text{ P}}}\,}{\text{Q 6}}\] then where Q – P = 3, then find the values of P and Q

Ans: Given, Q-P=3

From the question, P$\times $P=6

Therefore, P = 4 or 6

If, P =4, Q =5 not suitable for the question.

Hence, P =6 and Q = 9

47. If 1AB + CCA = 697 and there is no carryover, in addition, find the value of A + B + C.

Ans: According to the question there is no carry-over in addition.

1 + C = 6 \[ \Rightarrow \] C = 5

A + C = 9 \[ \Rightarrow \] A = 4

Now, B + A = 7 \[ \Rightarrow \] B = 3

Hence A + B + C = 12

48. A five-digit number AABAA is divisible by 33. Write all the numbers of this form.

Ans: Given, the number of the form AABAA is divisible by 33. Then, it is also divisible by 3 and11, as if a number a is divisible by b, then it is also divisible by each factor of b.

Since AABAA is divisible by 3, the sum of its digits is also divisible by 3.

i.e. 4 + 4 + 8 + A +4 = 0,3, 6,9…

or 4A + 8 = 0, 3, 6 9,… …(i)

From Eq. (i), we have

Further, the given number is also divisible by 11, therefore

(2A + 8) – 2A = 0,11,22,…

Therefore, B = 0 (single digit)

A = 3, 6, 9, .....

Hence numbers are 33066, 66066, 99099.

49. Find the value of the letters in each of the following questions

If \[\frac{\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{+A}}}\,\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{ A}}}\,}{\underline{\text{XA 2}}}\]

Ans: From the 1’s column A = 0 to 9.

From the 10’s column

A = 5 to 9 (The A + A is two digit number)

A = 5 to 8 does not satisfy the 10’s column

Hence, A =9 and then Z =8 and X =1.

50. \[\frac{\overset{\text{ 8}}{\mathop{\text{+4}}}\,\overset{\text{ 5}}{\mathop{\text{ A}}}\,}{\underline{\text{BC 3}}}\]

Ans: From the 1’s column,

The value of 5 + A is a two digit number whose last digit is 3.

Therefore, 5 + A = 13 \[ \Rightarrow \] A = 8

From the column 10’s,

10B + C =8 + 4 + 1

\[ \Rightarrow \]10B + C = 13 =10 × 1 + 3

Hence, A =8, B =1 and C =3

51. \[\frac{\overset{\text{ B}}{\mathop{\text{+8}}}\,\overset{\text{ 6}}{\mathop{\text{ A}}}\,}{\underline{\text{CA 2}}}\]

Ans: from the 1’s column,

6 + A = 12 \[ \Rightarrow \] A = 6

From the 10’s column,

CA = B + 8 + 1

C6 = B + 9

From the above equation, B + 9 is a number with unit digit 6.

B =7 C =1

Hence, A =6, B =7 and C =1.

52. \[+\frac{\overset{\text{1}}{\mathop{\text{A}}}\,\text{ }\overset{\text{B}}{\mathop{\text{B}}}\,\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{ A}}}\,}{\underline{\text{8 A 2}}}\]

Ans: from the 1’s column, 6 + A = 12 \[ \Rightarrow \] A = 6

From the 10’s column,

B + B + 1 =B

The above condition is fulfilled when B = 9.

From the 100’s column,

A +1 + 1 = 8

\[ \Rightarrow \] A = 6 = Satisfy the 1’s column value.

Hence, A =6, B = 9.

53. \[\frac{\text{+}\overset{\text{C}}{\mathop{\text{C}}}\,\text{ }\overset{\text{B}}{\mathop{\text{B}}}\,\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{ A}}}\,}{\underline{\text{ 1 8 3 0}}}\]

Ans: From the 1’s column,

A + A = 0 \[ \Rightarrow \] A = 0 or 5

From the 10’s column,

B + B + 1 =3

The above condition is fulfilled when B = 1,6.

From the 100’s column,

C + C + 1 = 1A

A = 0 does not satisfy the condition of 10’s column.

Therefore, A = 5

C + C =15 -1 \[ \Rightarrow \] C = 7

B = 1 does not satisfy the condition of 10’s column.

Therefore, B = 6 Hence, A = 5, B = 6 and C = 7

54. \[+\frac{\overset{\text{B}}{\mathop{\text{B}}}\,\text{ }\overset{\text{A}}{\mathop{\text{A}}}\,\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{ A}}}\,}{\underline{\text{3 A 8}}}\]

Ans: From the 1’s column,

A + A =8 \[ \Rightarrow \] A = 9 (because A + A is not a single digit number)

From the 100’s column,

B + B + 1 =3

\[ \Rightarrow \] B = 1

Hence, A = 9 and B = 1

55. \[\frac{\text{+}\overset{\text{A}}{\mathop{\text{1}}}\,\text{ }\overset{\text{0}}{\mathop{\text{0}}}\,\overset{\text{1}}{\mathop{\text{ A}}}\,\overset{\text{ B}}{\mathop{\text{ B}}}\,}{\underline{\text{ B 1 0 8}}}\]

Ans: from the 1’s column, B + B = 8

\[ \Rightarrow \] B = 9 (B +B not satisfy the 1000’s column)

From the 10’s column,

A + 1 + 1 =0

\[ \Rightarrow \] A = 8

Hence, A = 8 and B = 9

56. \[\frac{\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\times \text{ }}}\,\overset{\text{ B}}{\mathop{\text{ 6}}}\,}{\underline{\text{C 6 8}}}\]

Ans: 6 B is a number with unit digit 8.

Therefore, B = 3 or 8

For B = 3 equation \[ A \times 6+1=C6\] is not satisfied.

For B = 8 equation \[ A \times 6+1=C6 \] is satisfied.

Hence, A = 7 and B = 8.

57. \[\frac{\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ A }}}\,\overset{\text{ B}}{\mathop{\text{B}}}\,}{\underline{\text{6 A B}}}\]

Ans: Given, \[ AB \times AB = 6AB\] ... (i)

i.e., \[ B \times B \] is a number with unit digit B

So B= 1 or 5 \[ since, B \ne 0, else AB \times A \ne 6A \]

A gain, \[ AB \times AB = 6AB \]

The square of a two digit number is a three digit number.

Therefore, A can be 1, 2 and 3.

If A = 1, 2, 3 and B = 1, equation (i) is not valid.

For, A = 1, B = 5 equation (i) is not valid.

Therefore, A = 2, B = 5 equation is valid.

Hence, A = 2, B =5.

58. \[\frac{\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }}}\,\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{A}}}\,}{\underline{\text{C A B}}}\]

Ans: \[ AA \times \] A = three-digit number, that has unit digit B.

Therefore, A can be 4-9

And A = 0, 1, 2, 3 give a single digit or a two-digit number.

As the ten’s digit of the product is A itself.

Therefore, A$\ne $ 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Hence, A = 9, B = 1, C = 8.

59. \[\frac{\text{-}\overset{\text{ A}}{\mathop{\text{ B}}}\,\overset{\text{ B}}{\mathop{\text{7}}}\,}{\underline{\text{ 4 5}}}\]

Ans: In the ones column= B – 7 = 5

As, 12 – 7 = 5 so B =2

60. \[\frac{\text{-}\overset{\text{8}}{\mathop{\text{A}}}\,\text{ }\overset{\text{A}} {\mathop{\text{A}}}\,\overset{\text{B}}{\mathop{\text{ C}}}\,\overset{\text{ C}}{\mathop{\text{ 5}}}\,}{\underline{\text{ D 4 8 8}}}\]

Ans: The ones column = C – 5 = 8

We know, 13 – 5 = 8 therefore C = 3

In the ten’s column, B – (C + 1) = 8

B = 8 + C + 1

\[ \Rightarrow \]B = 8 + 3 +1

\[\Rightarrow ~~\] B = 12

Therefore, B = 2

In the hundred’s column

A – (B + 1) = 4

\[ \Rightarrow \] A = 4 + B + 1

\[ \Rightarrow \] A = 4 + 2 + 1 =7

In the thousand’s column,

8 – A = D

\[ \Rightarrow \] 8 – 7 = D

\[ \Rightarrow \] D = 1

Thus, A = 7, B = 2, C = 3 and D = 1.

61. If 27÷A = 33, then find the value of A

Ans: We observe that 4 x 3 can never be a single-digit number 2, so 4 x 3 must be a two-digit number, whose ten’s digit is 2 and unit’s digit is the number less than or equal to 4. Therefore, the value of 4 can be 9, as the values of 4 from 1 to 8 do not fit.

62. 212 × 5 is a multiple of 3 and 11. Find the value of x.

Ans: Since, 212 x 5 is a multiple of 3,

2 +1 + 2 +x+5 = 0, 3, 6,9,12,15,18,

\[ \Rightarrow \]10 + x = 0, 3, 6,………..

\[ \Rightarrow \] x =2, 5, 8 …(i)

Again, 212×5 is a multiple of 11, (2 + 2 + 5) — (1 + x) = 0,11,22, 33

\[ \Rightarrow \] 8 – x = 0,11,22,…

\[ \Rightarrow \] x = 8 …(ii)

From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we have ‘

x = 8

63. Find the value of k, where 31K2 is divisible by 6.

Now, 31K2 is divisible by 3, the sum of its digits is a multiple of 3.

i.e. 3+ 1 + k + 2 = 0, 3, 6, 9,12,…

\[ \Rightarrow \] k+ 6 = 0, 3,6, 9,12

\[ \Rightarrow \] k = 0 or 3, 6, 9

64. 1y3y6 is divisible by 11. Find the value of y.

Ans: It is given that 1y3y6 is divisible by 11.

Then, we have (1 + 3 + 6) – (y + y) = 0,11,22,…

\[ \Rightarrow \] 10-2y= 0,11,22,…

\[ \Rightarrow \]10-2y = 0 [other values give a negative number]

\[ \Rightarrow \] 2y = 10

\[ \Rightarrow \] y= 5

65. 756x is a multiple of 11, find the value of x.

Ans: We are given that 756x is a multiple of 11. Then, we have to find the value of x.

Since, 756x is divisible by 11, then (7 + 6) – (5 + x) is a multiple of 11,

i.e. 8-x = 0,11,22,…

\[ \Rightarrow \] 8- x = 0

\[ \Rightarrow \] x = 8

66. A three-digit number 2 a 3 is added to the number 326 to give a three-digit number 5b9 which is divisible by 9. Find the value of b –a.

Ans: \[ \frac{+\overset{\text{ 2}}{\mathop{\text{3}}}\,\overset{\text{ a}}{\mathop{2}}\,\overset{\text{ 3}}{\mathop{6}}\,}{\underline{\text{ 4 b 6}}}\]

From 1’s column,

3 + 6 = 9

From 10’s Column,

2 + 3 = 5

From the above conditions,

a + 2 is a single digit number b.

a + 2 = b

\[ \Rightarrow \] b -a = 2.

67. Let E = 3, B = 7 and A = 4. Find the other digits in the sum

\[\frac{+\overset{\text{B}}{\mathop{\text{B}}}\,\text{ }\overset{\text{A}}{\mathop{\text{A}}}\,\overset{\text{S}}{\mathop{\text{ L}}}\,\overset{\text{ E}}{\mathop{\text{ L}}}\,}{\underline{\text{ G AM E S}}}\]

Ans: From 1’s column

3 + L = S

\[ \Rightarrow \] S -L = 3 ....(1)

From 10’s column, S + L =3 ....(2)

Solving equation (1) and (2)

S = 3 and L =0

From 100’s column

4 + 4 =M

\[ \Rightarrow \] M = 8

From 1000’s column,

7 + 7 =G4

\[ \Rightarrow \] G =1

Hence, L = 0, M = 8 and G = 1

68. Let D = 3, L = 7 and A = 8. Find the other digits in the sum

**\[ \begin{align} & \text{M A D} \\ & \text{ + A S} \\ & \underline{\text{ + A }} \\
& \underline{\text{B U L L}} \\ \end{align} \]**

**Ans:** From the 1’s column

Therefore, S = 6

From 10’s column,

2A + 1 =16 + 1 =7 and carry 1

From 100’s column,

M + 1 is a 2 digit number.

Therefore, M = 9 Now, M + 1 = 9 + 1 =10 B =1, U = 0

Hence, S =6, M =9, B = 1 and U = 0

69. If from a two-digit number, we subtract the number formed by reversing its digits then the result obtained is a perfect cube. How many such numbers are possible? Write all of them.

Ans: Let ab be any two-digit number. Then, the digit formed by reversing it digits is ba.

Now, ab-ba = (10a+b)-(10b +a)

=(10a-a)+(b-10b)

= 9a – 9b = 9(a – b)

Further, since ab-ba is a perfect cube and is a multiple of 9.

.-.The possible value of a – b is 3.

i.e. a = b + 3

Here, b can take a value from 0 to 6.

Hence, possible numbers are as follows.

(18 + B) -11 = 0,11,22

B+ 7 = 0,11,22

B+7 = 11

B = 4 …(ii)

From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we have B = 4

73. If 123123A4 is divisible by 11, find the value of A.

Ans: Given, 12312344 is divisible by 11, then we have (1 + 3 + 2 + 4) – (2 + 1 + 3 + 4) is a multiple of 11.

i.e. (6+ 4)-10 =0,11,22,,..

A-4 = 0,11,22,…

A-4 = 0 [A is a digit of the given number]

A = 4

74. If 56 x 32y is divisible by 18, find the least value of y.

Ans: It is given that the number 56 x 32y is divisible by 18. Then, it is also divisible by each factor of 18.
