Question 4.

Using divisibility tests, determine which of the following numbers are divisible by 11:

(a) 5445

(b) 10824

(c) 7138965

(d) 70169308

(e) 10000001.

Sol. We know that a number is divisible by 11 if the difference between the sum of the digits at odd places (from the right) and the sum of the digits at even places (from the right) of the number is either 0 or divisible by 11.

(a) Given number = 5445

Sum of the digits at odd places = 5 + 4 = 9

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

Difference = 9 – 9 = 0

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

(b) Given number = 10824

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

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

Difference = 13 – 2 = 11

which is divisible by 11.

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

(c) Given number = 7138965

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

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

Difference = 24 – 15 = 9

which is not divisible by 11.

Hence, the given number is not divisible by 11.

(d) Given number = 70169308

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

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

Difference = 17-17 = 0

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

(e) Given number = 10000001

Sum of all the digits at odd places = 1 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 1

Sum of all the digits at even places = 0 + 0 + 0 + 1 = 1

Difference = 1 – 1 = 0

Hence, the given number 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:

We know that number is divisible by 3 if the sum of all the digits of the number is also divisible by 3.

(a) ___ 6724

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

The smallest digit to be placed is blank space = 2

Then the sum = 19 + 2 = 21 which is divisible by 3.

The greatest digit to be placed in blank space = 8

Then, the sum = 19 + 8 = 27 which is divisible by 3

Hence, the required digits are 2 and 8.

(b) 4765 ____ 2.

Sum of digits = 2 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 4 = 24

The smallest digits to be place in blank space = 0

Then, sum = 24 + 0 = 24

which is divisible by 3.

The greatest digit to be placed in blank space = 9.

Then, the sum = 24 + 9 = 33 which is divisible by 3.

Hence, the required digits are 0 and 9.

Question 6.

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

(a) 92 ___ 389

(b) 8 ___ 9484

Solution:

(a) 92 ___ 389

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

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

Difference = 17 + ( ) – 14 = () + 3

For the given number to be divisible by 11

( ) + 3 = 11

∴ ( ) = 11 – 3 = 8

So, the missing digit = 8

Hence, the required number is 928389.

(b) 8 ___ 9484

Sum of the digits at odd places = 4 + 4 + ( ) = 8 + ( )

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

∴ Difference = 25 – [8 + ( )]

= 25 – 8 – ( ) = 17 – ( )

For the given number to be divisible by 11

17 – 0 = 11

∴ 17 – 11 = 6

So, the missing digit = 6

Hence, the required number = 869484.
