**Que-7: ****Test the divisibility of each of the following number by 11 :**

**(i) 1452 (ii) 9416 (iii) 818532 (iv) 84524**

**Solution- **A given number is divisible by 11, if the difference between the sum of its digits at odd places and the sum of its digits at even places is

either 0 or a number divisible by 11.

(i) 1452

For the given number,

sum of the digits at odd places = 1 + 5 = 6

sum of digits at even places = 4 + 2 = 6

Difference of the above sums = 6 − 6 = 0

Since the difference is 0 and a number divisible by 11 so, the 1452 is divisible by 11.

(ii) 9416

For the given number,

sum of the digits at odd places = 9 + 1 = 10

sum of digits at even places = 4 + 6 = 10

Difference of the above sums = 10 − 10 = 0

Since the difference is 0 and a number divisible by 11 so, the 9416 is divisible by 11.

(iii) 818532

For the given number,

sum of the digits at odd places = 8 + 8 + 3 = 19

sum of digits at even places = 1 + 5 + 2 = 8

Difference of the above sums = 19 − 8 = 11

Since the difference is 11 and a number divisible by 11 so, the 818532 is divisible by 11.

(iv) 84524

For the given number,

sum of the digits at odd places = 8 + 5 + 4 = 17

sum of digits at even places = 4 + 2 = 6

Difference of the above sums = 17 − 6 = 11

Since the difference is 11 and a number divisible by 11 so, the 84524 is divisible by 11.

**Que-8: Find all possible values of x for which the number 534 x 2 is divisible by 3. Also, find each such number.**

**Solution- **The number 534×2 is divisible by 3 if the sum of its digits is divisible by 3.

So, the sum of its digits is 5+3+4+x+2 = 14+x.

If x = 1 then,

14 + x = 14 + 1 = 15 is divisible by 3

If x = 4 then,

14 + x = 14 + 4 = 18 is divisible by 3.

If x = 7 then,

14 + x = 14 + 7 = 21 is divisible by 3.

So, x = 1,4 or 7

and the numbers is : 53412, 53442, 53472

**Que-9: Find the least number which should replace * in the number 89*2 to make it exactly divisible by : **

**(i) 3 (ii) 9**

**Solution- **(i) A no. is divisible by 3 if the sum of its all digits is divisible by 3

89*2

Replacing *

8+9+1+2 = 20 →no

8+9+2+2 = 21→ yes

So , 2 should replace * in the number 89*2 to make it divisible by 3.

(ii) The divisibility rule of 9 states that the sum of the digits must be divisible by nine.

8+9+2 = 19, which is not divisible by nine.

19 + 8 = 27, which is divisible by nine.

Therefore, 8 is the smallest number to be added.

**Que-10: Find the value of z for which the number 417 z 8 is divisible by 9. Also, the number.**

**Solution- **Given number is 417Z8

⇒ the sum of digits of given number = 20 + z; to be a multiple of 9, z should be 7

⇒ So, the number is 41778

∴ the value of Z = 7.

**Que-11: Give five examples of numbers, each one of which is divisible by 3 but not divisible by 9.**

**Solution- **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.

**Que-12: Give five examples of numbers, each one of which is divisible by 4 but not divisible by 8.**

**Solution- **For a number to be divisible by 4, the number formed by its last two digits should be divisible by 4.

And for the number to be divisible by 8, the number formed by its last three digits should be divisible by 8.

So, the numbers divisible by 4 and not by 8 will be 12, 20, 28, 36, 44.
