#### Question 1:

The units digit of a two-digit number is 3 and seven times the sum of the digits is the number itself. Find the number.

#### Answer:

Let the tens place digit be x.

The units place digit is 3.

∴ Number = (10x + 3) ... (1)

Given:

7( x + 3) = (10 x + 3)

7 x + 21 = 10 x + 3

∴ 10 x - 7x = 21 - 3

⇒ 3 x = 18

or x = 6

Using x = 6 in equation (1):

The number is 63.

#### Question 2:

In a two-digit number, the digit at the units place is double the digit in the tens place. The number exceeds the sum of its digits by 18. Find the number.

#### Answer:

Let the tens digit be x.

The digit in the units place is 2x.

Number = 10x + 2x

Given:

(x + 2x) + 18 = (10x + 2x)

∴ 3x + 18 = 12x

12x - 3x = 18

9x =18

x = $\frac{18}{2}$ = 2

The digit in the tens place is 2.

The digit in the units place is twice the digit in the tens place.

The digit in the units place is 4.

Therefore, the number is 24.

#### Question 3:

A two-digit number is 3 more than 4 times the sum of its digits. If 18 is added to the number, its digits are reversed. Find the number.

#### Answer:

Let the tens place digit be a and the units place digit be b.

Then, number is (10a + b).

According to the question:

4(a + b) + 3 = (10 a + b)

4a + 4b + 3 = 10a + b

6a - 3b = 3

3(2a - b) = 3

2a - b =1 ... (1)

Given:

If 18 is added to the number, its digits are reversed.

The reverse of the number is (10b + a).

∴ (10a + b) + 18 = 10b + a

10a - a + b -10b = -18

9a - 9b = -18

9(a - b) = -18

a - b = -2 ... (2)

Subtracting equation (2) from equation (1):

2a - b = 1

a - b = -2

__- + + __

a = 3

Using a = 3 in equation (1):

2(3) - b = 1

6 - b = 1

∴ b = 5

Number = 10a+b = 10 $\times $ 3 + 5 = 35

#### Page No 72:

#### Question 4:

The sum of the digits of a two-digit number is 15. The number obtained by interchanging its digits exceeds the given number by 9. Find the original number.

#### Answer:

Let the tens place digit be a and the units place digit be b.

Then, the number is (10a + b).

Given:

a + b = 15 ... (1)

When the digits are interchanged the number will be (10 b + a).

Given:

10a + b + 9 = 10 b + a

∴ 10a - a + b - 10b = -9

9a - 9b = -9

a - b = -1 ... (2)

Adding equations (1) and (2):

a + b = 15

__a - b = -1 __

2a = 14

∴ a = 7

Using a = 7 in equation (2):

7 - b = -1

∴ b = 8

Original number = 10a+b = 10 $\times $ 7 + 8 = 78

#### Page No 72:

#### Question 5:

The difference between a 2-digit number and the number obtained by interchanging its digits is 63. What is the difference between the digits of the number?

#### Answer:

Let the tens place digit be 'x' and the units place digit be 'y'.

∴ Number = (10x + y)

Number obtained by interchanging the digits = (10y + x)

Given: (10x + y) - (10y + x) = 63

∴ 10x - x + y - 10 y = 63

9x - 9y = 63

9(x - y) = 63

x - y = 7

Therefore, the difference between the digits of the number is 7.

#### Question 6:

In a 3-digit number, the tens digit is thrice the units digit and the hundreds digit is four times the units digit. Also, the sum of its digits is 16. Find the number.

#### Answer:

Let the units place digit be x.

Then, the tens place digit will be 3x and the hundreds place digit will be 4x.

Given:

4x + 3x + x = 16

or 8x = 16

or x =2

Units place digit = 2

Tens place digit = 3 $\times $ 2 = 6

Hundreds place digit = 4 $\times $ 2 = 8

Therefore, the number is 862.

The sum of the digits is divisible by 9, only in the following case:

$x=4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}or\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x+14=18\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Thus, the number x806 is divisible by 9 if $x$ is equal to 4.

The number is 4806.

#### Question 13:

Find the value of *z* for which the number 471*z*8 is divisible by 9. Also, find the number.

#### Answer:

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

Sum of the digits of the given number = $4+7+1+z+8=20+z$

$20+z=27,forz=7$

27 is divisible by 9.

Therefore, 471z8 is divisible by 9 if $z$ is equal to 7.

The number is 47178.

#### Question 14:

Give five examples of numbers, each one of which is divisible by 3 but not divisible by 9.

#### Answer:

For a number to be divisible by 3, the sum of the digits should be divisible by 3.

And for the number to be divisible by 9, the sum of the digits should be divisible by 9.

Let us take the number 21.

Sum of the digits is 2 + 1 = 3, which is divisible by 3 but not by 9. Hence, 21 is divisible by 3 not by 9.

Similarly, lets check the number 24. Here, 2 + 4 = 6. This is divisible by 3 not by 9.

The number 30 will be divisible by 3 not by 9 as 3 + 0 = 3.

The number 33 will give 3 + 3 = 6, which is divisible by 3 not by 9.

Also 39 has the digits 3 + 9 = 12, which is divisible by 3 not by 9.

Hence, the numbers 21, 24, 30, 33 and 39 are divisible by 3 not by 9.

#### Answer:

First look at the left column, which is:

$6-A=3$

This implies that the maximum value of A can be 3.

$A\le 3$ ... (1)

The next column has the following:

$A-B=7$

To reconcile this with equation (1), borrowing is involved.

We know:

$12-5=7$

∴ $A=2andB=5$

#### Answer:

$5-A=9$

This implies that 1 is borrowed.

We know:

$15-6=9$

∴ $A=6$

$B-5=8$

This implies that 1 is borrowed.

$13-5=8$

But 1 has also been lent

∴$B=4$

$C-2=2$

This implies that 1 has been lent.

∴ $C=5$

∴ $A=6,B=4andC=5$

$\begin{array}{ccc}& A& B\\ \times & B& A\end{array}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\overline{)\overline{)\begin{array}{ccc}(B+1)& C& B\end{array}}}$**

#### Answer:

$A\times B=B\Rightarrow A=1$

In the question:

First digit = B+1

Thus, 1 will be carried from 1+B^{2} and becomes (B+1) (B^{2} -9) B.

∴ C = B^{2} -1

Now, all B, B+1 and B^{2} -9 are one digit number.

This condition is satisfied for B=3 or B=4.

For B< 3, B^{2} -9 will be negative.

For B>3, B^{2} -9 will become a two digit number.

For B=3 , C = 3^{2} - 9 = 9-9 = 0

For B = 4, C = 4^{2} -9 = 16-9 = 7

Required answer:

A=1, B=3, C = 0

or

A=1, B=4, C = 7

#### Answer:

$(A-4)=3\Rightarrow A=7$

Also, $6\times 6=36\Rightarrow C=6$

$36-36=0\Rightarrow B=6$

∴ $A=7\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}B=C=6$

When a number is divisible by 3, the sum of the digits must also be divisible by 3.

$x+7+y+5=(x+y)+12$

This sum is divisible by 3 if x+y+12 is 12 or 15.

For x+y+12 = 12:

x+y=0

But x+y cannot be 0 because then x and y both will have to be 0.

Since x is the first digit, it cannot be 0.

∴ x+y+12 = 15

A number is divisible by 9 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 9.

$x+4+y+5+z=9+(x+y+z)$

The lowest value of $(x+y+z)\mathrm{is}\mathrm{equal}\mathrm{to}0$ for the number x4y5z to be divisible by 9.

In this case, all x, y and z will be 0.

But x is the first digit, so it cannot be 0.

∴ x+4+y+5+z = 18

or x+y+z+9 = 18

or x+y+z = 9

#### Answer:

(d) 9

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

$x+2+7+y=(x+y)+9$

For this to be divisible by 9, the least value of $(x+y)\mathrm{is}0$.

But for x+y = 0, x and y both will be zero.

Since x is the first digit, it can never be 0.

∴ x + y + 9 = 18

#### Question 3:

The sum of the digits of a 2-digit number is 6. The number obtained by interchanging its digits is 18 more than the original number. Find the original number.

#### Answer:

Let the two numbers of the two-digit number be 'a' and 'b'.

$a+b=6$ ... (1)

The number can be written as $(10a+b)$.

After interchanging the digits, the number becomes $(10b+a)$.

$(10a+b)+18=(10b+a)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}9a-9b=-18$

$a-b=-2$ ... (2)

Adding equations (1) and (2):

$2a=4\Rightarrow a=2$

Using $a=2$ in equation (1):

$b=6-a=6-2=4$

Therefore, the original number is 24.
