Question 4.

Using divisibility tests, determine Which of the following numbers are divisible by

a) 5445

b) 10824

c) 7138965

d) 70169308

e) 10000001

f) 901153

Solution:

a) 5445:- Sum of the given digits at odd places = 5 + 4 = 9

Sum of the given digits at even places = 4 + 5 = 9

Difference = 9 – 9 = 0

As the difference between the sum of the digits at odd places and the sum of the digits at an even place is 0.

Therefore, 5445 is divisible by 11.

b) 10824:-

Sum of the given digits at odd places = 4 + 8 + 1 = 13

Sum of the given digits at even places = 2 + 0 = 2

Difference = 13 – 2 = 11

The difference between the sum of the digits at odd places and the sum of the digit at even places is 11. Which is divisible by 11. Therefore 10824 is divisible by 11.

c) 7138965:-

Sum of the given digits at odds places = 5 + 9 + 3 + 7 = 24

Sum of the given digits at even places = 6 + 8 + 1 = 15.

Difference = 24 – 15 = 9.

The difference between the sum of the digits at odd places and the sum of digits at an even place is 9, Which is not divisible by 11.

∴ 7138965 is not divisible by 11.

d) 70169308:-

Sum of the digits at odd places = 8 + 3 + 6 + 0 = 17

Sum of digits at even places = 0 + 9 + 1 + 7 = 17

Difference = 17 – 17 = 0

As the difference between the sum of the digits at odd places and the sum of the digits at an even place is 0.

Therefore, 70169308 is divisible by 11.

e) 10000001:-

Sum of the digits at odd places=1 1

Sum of the digits even place = 1

Difference = 1 – 1 = 0

As the difference between the sum of the digits at odd places and the sum of the digits at even places is 0. therefore 10000001 is divisible by 11.

f) 901153:-

Sum of the digits at odd places = 3 + 1 + 0 = 4.

Sum of the digits at even places = 5 + 1 + 9 = 15

Difference = 15 – 4 = 11

The difference between the sum of the digits at odd places and the sum of the digits at even places is 11, Which is divisible by 11.

Therefore, 901153 is divisible by 11.

Question 5.

Write the smallest digit and the greatest digit in the blank space of each of the following numbers so that the number formed is divisible by 3:

a) ___6724

b) 4765___2

Solution:

a) __ 6724:-

Sum of the remaining digits = 6 + 7 + 2 + 4 = 19

To make the number divisible by 3, the sum of its digits should be divisible by 3.

The smallest multiple of 3 Which comes after 19 is 21.

∴ Smallest number = 21 – 19 = 2

Now 2 + 3 + 3 = 8

However 2 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 11

If we put 8, then the sum of the digits will be 27 and as 27 is divisible by 3 the number will also be divisible by 3.

Therefore the largest number is 8.

b) 4765 ___ 2

Sum of the remaining digits = 24

To make the number divisible by 3, the sum of its digits should be divisible by 3. As 24 is already divisible by 3, the smallest number that can be placed here is 0

Now, 0 + 3 = 3

3 + 3 = 6

3 + 3 + 3 = 9

However, 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12

If we put 9 then the sum of the digits will be 33 and as 33 is divisible by 3, the number will also be divisible by 3.

Therefore, the largest number is 9.

Question 6.

Write a digit in the blank space of each of the following numbers so that the number formed is divisible by 11:

a)92___389

b) 8 ___ 9484.

Solution:

a) 92 ___ 389:-

Let a be placed in the blank.

sum of the digits at odd places = 9 + 3 + 2 = 14

Sum of the digits at even places = 8 + a = 9 = 17a

Difference = 17 + a – 14 = 3 + a

For a number to be divisible by 11, this difference should be zero or a multiple of 11.

If 3 + a = 0, then

a = -3

However, It cannot be negative.

The closest multiple of 11, which is near to 3, has to be taken. It is 11 itself

3 + a = 11

a = 11 – 3

a = 8

Therefore, the required digits are 8

b) 8__9484

Let a be placed in the blank.

Sum of the digits at odds places = 4 + 4 + a = 8 + a

Sum of the digits at even place = 8 + 9 + 8 = 25

Difference = 25 – 8 + a

= 17 – a

For a number to be divisible by 11, this difference should be zero or a multiple of 11.

If 17 – a = 0, then

a = 17

This is not possible

A multiple of 11 has to be taken. Taking 11 we obtained

17 – a = 11

a = 6

Therefore the required digit is 6.
