So, 4100448 is divisible by 4, 6, 8, 11.

**Question 5. In 92 * 389, replace * by a digit so that the number formed is divisible by 11.**

**Answer:**

The given number is 92 * 389

Here, * occur at odd place

Sum of digits at odd place 9+8 =17

Sum of digits at even place 2+3+9 = 14

Their difference 17- 14 = 3

If * is replaced by 8, then sum of digits at odd place = 9+8+8 =25

Their difference (Sum of digits at odd places – Sum of digits at even places)

= 25 – 14 = 11

Which is divisible by 11

So, * is to be replaced by the digit 8.

L.C.M of the given numbers is = 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 2 x 3 x 19 = 6384

**Question 11. Find the greatest number which divides 2706, 7041 and 8250 leaving remainder 6, 21 and 42 respectively.**

**Answer:**

When 2706 is divided by the required number, 6 is left as a remainder.

So, 2706 – 6 = 2700

ex. 2700 is exactly divisible by that number.

Similarly, 7041 – 21 = 7020 is exactly divisible by that number.

Similarly, also, 8250 – 42 = 8208 is exactly divisible by that number

**Therefore,**

2700, 7020 and 8208 are divisible by that number.

Thus, the required number is the H.C.F. of 2700, 7020 and 8208

First, we find H.C.F. of 270Land 7020

So, the HCF of 2700, 7020 and 8208 is 108.

Hence, the required number is 108

**Question 12. Find the least number which on decreasing by 20 is exactly divisible by 18, 21, 28 and 30.**

**Answer:**

We, Find the least number which is exactly divisible by the numbers 18, 21, 28, and 30. For this, we find the LCM of 198, 21 28 and 30

So, L.C.M of the given numbers is = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 1260

The required number = 1260 + 20 = 1280

**Question 13. There are three heaps of rice weighing 120 kg, 144 kg and 204 kg. Find the maximum capacity of a bag so that the rice of each heap can be packed in exact number of bags.**

**Answer:**

Weight of three heaps = 120 kg 144 kg and 204 kg

So, maximum capacity of a bag, which is exactly divides the heaps in exact number HCF of 120, 144, 204 = 12

So, Required capacity of bags = 12 kg

**Question 14. Three bells are ringing continuously at intervals of 30, 36 and 45 minutes respectively. At what time will they ring together again if they ring simultaneously at 8 a.m.**

**Answer:**

**Question 15. Three brands A, B, C of biscuits are available in packets of 12, 15, and 21 biscuits respectively. If a shopkeeper wants to buy equal number of biscuits of each brand, what is the minimum number of packets of each brand he should buy ?**

**Answer:**

For a minimum number of biscuits, first, we find the LCM of 12, 15 and 21.

The prime factors of the following numbers are:

12=2×2×3

15=3×5

21=3×7

The maximum number of times the prime factor 2 occurs is 2.

The maximum number of times the prime factor 3 occurs is 1.

The maximum number of times the prime factor 5 occurs is 1.

The maximum number of times the prime factor 7 occurs is 1.

∴ LCM= 3 × 4 × 5 × 7 = 420

∴ Minimum number of packets of brand A =420/12=35

Minimum number of packets of brand B =420/15=28

And minimum number of packets of brand C =420/21=20

**Question 16. Two numbers are co-prime and their L.C.M. is 4940. If one of the numbers is 65, find the other number.**

**Answer:**

One number = 65

and other number = x

Two numbers are co-prime if their HCF is 1

Now, HCF x LCM of two numbers = Product of given two numbers

1 x 4940 = 65 x x

4940 = 65 x x

65 x x = 4940

x = 4940 / 65 = 76

So, the other number is 76
