Write any 5 numbers which are divisible by 2,5 and 10.

Solution:

10, 20, 30, 40. are divisible by 2, 5 and 10

[∵ The L.C.M. of 2, 5, 10 is 10]

A number 34A is exactly divisible by 2 and leaves a remainder 1, when divided by 5, find A.

Solution:

If 34A Is divisible by 2 then the remainder should be equal to 0.

∴ A should be equal to 0, 2, 4, 6, 8.

∴ 340, 342, 344, 346, 348 are divisible by 2 and gives the remainder ‘0’.

Among these 346 is divisible by 5 and gives the remainder 1.

∴ 346 → 6/5 (R = 1)

∴ The value of A = 6.

If 345 A 7 is divisible by 3,supply the missing digit in place of ‘A’.

Solution:

If the sum of the digits of a number is divisible by 3, then the number is divisible by 3.

∴ 345A7 ⇒ 3 + 4 + 5 + A + 7 = 19 + A

19 + A = 3 x 7

⇒ A = 21 - 19 = 2 ⇒ A = 24 - 19 = 5

A + 19 = 3 x 8

⇒ A = 24 - 19 = 5

A + 19 = 3 x 9

⇒ A = 27 - 19 = 8

∴ A = {2,5,8}

If 2791 A,is divisible by 9, supply the missing digit in place of ‘A’.

Solution:

If the sum of the digits of a number is divisible by 9, then the number is divisible by 9.

∴ 2791A = 2 + 7 + 9 + 1 + A = 9 x 3

⇒ 19 + A = 9 x 3 = 27

⇒ A = 27 - 19 = 8

∴ A = 8

Write some numbers which are divisible by 2,3,5,9 and 10 also.

Solution:

The given number is 2P.

If 2P is divisible by 2, 3 then 2P should be a multiple of 6. [ ∵ L.C.M. of 2, 3 is 6]

∴ 2P = 24, 30 ………….

24 → 2 + 4 → 6/3 (R = 0)

∴ P = 4

54Z leaves remainder 2 when divided by 5 , and leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3, what is the value of Z’?

Solution:

If 54Z is divisible by 3 then the sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 3.

According to problem 54Z is divisible by 3 and leaves remainder 1’.

∴ 5 + 4 + Z = (3 x 4) + 1

= 9 + Z = 13

∴ Z = 4(or)

9 + Z = (3 x 5) + 1

9 + Z = 16

Z = 7

If 54Z is divisible by 5 then Z should be equal to either ‘0’ or ‘5’.

∴ 54(0 + 2) = 542 (Z = 2)

54(0 + 7) = 547 (Z = 7)

∴ From the above two cases

Z = 7

∵ 547 → 7/5 (R = 2)

27Q leaves remainder 3 when divided by 5 and leaves remainder 1 when divided by 2, what is the remainder when it is divided by 3?

Solution:

27Q is divided by 5 gives the remainder 3

Le.,27Q = 27 (0 + 3) = 273(Z = 3)(T)

= 27 (0 + 8) = 278 (Z = 8)

27Q is divided by 2 gives the remainder 1.

i.e., 27Q = 27(0 + 1) = 271 (Z = 1)

27Q = 27 (0 + 3) = 273 (Z = 3) (T)

∴ From above situations Z = 3

∴ 27Q = 273 → 2 + 7 + 3 → 12/3 (R = 0)

∴ 273 is divisible by 3 and gives the remainder 0’.

If A679B is a 5-dit number is divisible by 72 find ‘A’ and ‘B”?

Solution:

If A679B is divisible by 72 then it should be divisible by 8 and 9.

[ ∵ 8, 9 are the factors of 72]

A679B is divisible by 9 then

A + 6 + 7 + 9 + B = A + B + 22 = 27 (= 9 x 3)

=A + B = 5 ……………. (1)

A679B → 79 B/8 [From B (2,4,6,8) we take B = 2]

b) 2 + 8 + B = 15 ⇒ B = 15 - 10 = 5

2 + 1 + B = 8 ⇒ B = 8 - 3 = 5

∴ B = 5

c) A + 7 + A=13 ⇒ 2A = 6 ⇒ A = 3 A + A + 1 = 7 2A = 6 ⇒ A = 3

∴ A = 3

d) From 1st column

2 + 9 + 9 + A = 26

A = 26 - 20 = 6

From 2nd column

⇒ 2 + 1 + A = 9 ⇒ A = 9 - 3 = 6

∴ A = 6

e) B + 6 + A = 11 or 21

B + A + (1 or 2) = 6

A + 1 = 4 ⇒ A = 3

⇒ From (1), B + 6 + 3 = 11 ⇒ B = 2

∴ A = 3, B = 2

Find the value of A in the following

(a) 7A - 16 = A9 (b) 107 - A9 = lA (e) A36 - 1A4 = 742

Solution:

A- 6 = 9

If A = 5 it is possible.

∴ A = 5 (or)

7A- 16 = A9

⇒ 7 x 10 + (1 x A) - 16 = (A x 10 + 9 x 1)

⇒ 70 + A - 16 = 10A + 9

⇒ 9A = 45

⇒ A = 5

b) 107 - A9 = 1A

⇒107 - (10 x A + 9 x 1) = (1 x 10 + A x 1)

⇒107-10A-9= 10 +A

⇒ 11A = 88 A = 8

c) A36 - 1A4 = 742

⇒ (100 x A + 3 x 10 + 6 x 1) - (1 x 100 + A x 10 + 4 x 1) = 742

⇒ 100A + 36 - 100 - 10A - 4 = 742

⇒ 90A = 810

⇒A = 810/90

∴ A = 9

Find the numerical value of the letters given below-

Solution:

a) If E x 3 = E then E should be equal to 0 (or) 5.

5 x 3 = 15, 0 x 3 = 0

3 x D + 0 = ID [If E = 0]

⇒ 3D = 10 + D

⇒ 2D = 10

⇒ D = 5

∴ F = 1, D = 5, E = 0

b) If H x 6 = H then H should be equal to 0, 2, 6, 8.

G6 = 1G [If H = 0]

⇒ 6G + 0 = 10 + G

⇒ 5G = 10

⇒ G = 10/5 = 2

C = 1, G = 2, H = 0

10 M + N = 50 (-) M + N = 5 9M = 45

∴ M = 5

If M = 5 then

M + N = 5

⇒ N = 0

M = 5, N = 0 [∵ 1503 = 50 ]

(n

Solution:

∴ If n = 4, (n^{3}- n) is divisible by 3.

∴ (n^{3}- n) is divisible by all the values of n.

Method 2:

n^{3} - n = n(n^{2}- 1)

= n(n + 1)(n - 1)

∴ (n^{3} - n) is divisible by ‘3’ for all the values of n.

[∵ (n - 1), n, (n + 1) are three consecutive odd numbers]

Sum of ‘n’ odd number of consecutive numbers is divisible by ‘n’. Explain the reason.

Solution:

Sum of n’ consecutive odd numbers = n^{2}

Since n is a factor of n^{2}, It Is divisible by ‘n’.
