Question 6.

In each of the following replace ‘*’ by a digit so that the number formed is divisible by 9:

(i) 4710 * 82

(ii) 70 * 356722

Solution:

(i) 4710 * 82

The given number = 4710 * 82 Sum of its given digits

= 4 + 7 + 1+ 0 + 8 + 2 = 22

The number next to 22 which is divisible by 9 is 27.

∴ Required smallest number = 27 – 22 = 5

(ii) 70 * 356722

The given number = 70 * 356722 Sum of its given digits

= 7 + 0 + 3 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 2 + 2 = 32

The number next to 32 which is divisible by 9 is 36.

∴ Required smallest number = 36 – 32 = 4

Question 7.

In each of the following replace ‘*’ by (i) the smallest digit (ii) the greatest digit so that the number formed is divisible by 3:

(a) 4 * 672

(b) 4756 * 2

Solution:

(a) 4 * 672

(i) Smallest digit

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

∵ 19 is not divisible by 3

∴ Smallest digit (non-zero) is = 2

(ii) Greatest digit

The greatest digit is 8

i. e. 19 + 8 = 27 which is divisible by 3

(b) 4756 * 2

(i) Smallest digit

Sum of the given digits = 4 + 7 + 5 + 6 = 24

∵ 24 is divisible by 3

∴ Smallest digit is 0.

Question 8.

In each of the following replace ‘*’ by a digit so that the number formed is divisible by 11:

(i) 8 * 9484

(ii) 9 * 53762

Solution:

(i) 8 * 9484

Sun of the given digits (at odd places) from the right

= 4 + 4 + required digit

= 8 + required digit

Sum of the given digits (at even places) from the right = 8 + 9 + 8 = 25

Difference of sums = 25 – (8 + required digit) = 17 – required digit

11 is the number smaller than 17, who gets divided by 11

∴ For the above difference to be divisible by 11 required digit = 6

Hence the required number is 869784

(ii) 9 * 53762

Sum of the given digits (at odd places) from the right

= 2 + 7 + 5 + 9 = 23

Sum of the given digits (at even places) from the right

= 6 + 3 + required number = 9

Difference of sums = 23 – (9 + required number) = 14- required number

For the above difference to be divisible by 11 required digit = 3

= 14 – 3 = 11

11 is divisible by 11

Hence, the required number is 9353762

Question 9.

(a) 2 * 4706

If the number is divisible by 6 then the number should also get divisible by 2 and 3.

⇒ The last digit of2 * 4706 is 6, so it is divisible by 2.

⇒ The sum of 2 * 4706

= 2 + 4 + 7 + 0 + 6=19

(i) Smallest required number to be added in 19 is 2.

As 19 + 2 = 21 (i.e. 21 is divisible by 3)

(ii) Greatest required number to be added in 19 is 8

As 19 + 8 = 27 (i.e. 27 is divisible by 3)

(b) 5825 * 34

If the number is divisible by 6, then it should get divisible by 2 and 3.

⇒ The last number is 4, so it is divisible by 2

⇒ The sum of 5825 * 34

= 5 + 8 + 2 + 5 + 3 + 4 = 27

(i) The smallest number to be added in 27 is 0 27 + 0 = 27 (27 is divided by 3)

(ii) Greatest number to be added in 27 is 9

i.e. 27 + 9 = 36

36 is divided by 3
