(vi) 1790184

**Answer:**

A number is divisible by 6 if it is divisible by 2 as well as by 3

**(i) 93573** : It is not divisible by 6 because, it is not divisible by 2

**(ii) 217944 :** divisible by 6 if it is divisible by 2 as well as by 3

so the number is divisible by 2

Hence, given number is divisible by 6

**(iii) 5034126 :** divisible by 6 if it is divisible by 2 as well as by 3

**(iv) 901352** : In this number is last digit is 2 , which is divisible by 2

now the sum of number is – 9+0+1+3+5+2 = 20

20 is not divisible by 3

so the given number is not divisible by 6

**(v) 639210** : In this number is last digit is 4 , which is divisible by 2

now the sum of number is – 6+3+9+2+1+0 = 21

21 is divisible by 3

so the given number is divisible by 6

**(vi) 1790184** : In this number is last digit is 4 , which is divisible by 2

now the sum of number is – 1+7+9+0+1+8+4 = 30

30 is divisible by 3

so the given number is divisible by 6

**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

**Answer:**

**(i) 4710 * 82**

sum of the given number are = 4+7+1+0+8+2 = 22

the number is 22 which is divisible by 9 is 27.

smallest number = 27 – 22 = 5

**(ii) 70 * 356722**

sum of the given number are = 7+0+3+5+6+7+2+2 = 32

the number is 32 which is divisible by 9 is 36.

smallest number = 36 – 32 = 43

**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

**Answer:**

**(a) 4 * 672**

(i) the smallest digit

sum of the given number = 4+6+7+2 = 19

19 is not divisible by 3

so smallest digit is = 2

(i) the greatest digit

The greatest digit is 8

ex. 19 + 8 = 27

which is divisible by 3

**(b) 4756 * 2**

(i) the smallest digit

sum of the given number = 4+7+5+6 = 24

24 is divisible by 3

so smallest digit is = 0

(i) the greatest digit

The greatest digit is 9

ex. 24 + 9 = 33

which is divisible by 3

**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

**Answer**

**(i) 8 * 9484**

Sun of the given digits from the right

= 4 + 4 + required digit

= 8 + required digit

Sum of the given digits 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

so 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 from the right = 2+7+ 5+9 = 23

Sum of the given digits 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. In each of the following replace ‘*’ by (i) the smallest digit 00 the greatest digit so that the number formed is divisible by 6:**

(a) 2 * 4706

(b) 5825 * 34

**Answer:**

**(a) 2* 4706**

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

The last digit of 2* 4706 is 6,

so it is divisible by 2.

= 2+4+7 0+6 = 19(i) Smallest required number to be added in 19 is 2.

As 19 +8 = 27 …… (ex.. 27 is divisible by 3)

**(b) 5825*34**

The last number is 4,

The sum of 5825*34

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

(i) The smallest number to be added in 27 is 0

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

ex. 27+9 = 36 ……. 36 is divided by 3

**Question 10. Which of the following numbers are prime:**

(i) 101

(ii) 251

(iii) 323

(iv) 397

**Answer:**

(i) 101

We have, 101 = 1 x 101

101 has exactly two factors 1 and 101 itself.

so 101 is a prime number.

(ii) 251

We have, 251 = 1 x 251

251 has exactly two factors 1 and 251 itself.

so 251 is a prime number.

(iii) 323

We have, 323 = 1 x 323

= 17 x 19

Factors of 323 are 1, 17, 19, 323

323 has more than two factors.

so 323 is not a prime number.

(iv) 397

We have, 397 = 1 x 397

397 has exactly two factors 1 and 397 itself.

so 397 is a prime number.

**Question 11. Determine if 372645 is divisible by 45.**

**Answer:**

Determine if 25110 is divisible by 45, we test it for divisible by 5 and 9 both.

Divisibility of 372645 by 5

so Number in the unit’s place of 372645 = 5

372645 is divisible by 5

Divisibility of 372645 by 9

Sum of the digits of the number 372645 = 3+7+2 +6+4+5 = 27 ……..(27 is divisible by 9)

so 372645 is divisible by 9

As 372645 is divisible by 5 and 9 both and 5 and 9 are co-prime numbers,

so 372645 is

divisible by 5 x 9= 45

**Question 12. A number is divisible by 12. By what other numbers will that number be divisible?**

**Answer:**

The number is divisible by 12 ,

should also get divisible by all its factors.

So, the number by which given number is divisible are : 1,2,3,4,6.

**Question 13. A number is divisible by both 3 and 8. By which other numbers will that number be always divisible?**

**Answer:**

A natural number, say n, be divisible by both 3 and 8.

As 3 and 8 are co-prime numbers using property n is divisible by 3 x 8

(i.e. 24).

Thus, the given number is always divisible by 24.

So, the given number should get divided by all the factors of 24.

Therefore, the other number by which the given numbers is always divisible are: 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 24

**Question 14. State whether the following statements are true (T) or false (F):**

(i) If a number is divisible by 4, it must be divisible by 8.

(ii) If a number is divisible by 3, it must be divisible by 9.

(iii) If a number is divisible by 9, it must be divisible by 3.

(iv) If a number is divisible by 9 and 10 both, it must be divisible by 90.

(v) If a number divides the sum of two numbers, then it must divide the two numbers separately. .

(vi) If a number is divisible by 3 and 8 both, it must be divisible by 12.

(vii) If a number is divisible by 6 and 15 both, it must be divisible by 90.

**Answer:**

(i) **False **

(ii) **False **

(iii) **Ture **
