Hence, the value of M is 4

(ii) 77548 M

The given number = 77548 M

For a number to be divisible by 9 sum of digits must be divisible by 9

Sum of digits = 7 + 7 + 5 + 4 + 8 = 31

The number which is divisible by 9 next to 31 is 36

Required smallest number = 36 â€“ 31 = 5

Hence, the value of M is 5

(iii) 627 M 9

The given number = 627 M 9

For a number to be divisible by 9 sum of digits must be divisible by 9

Sum of digits = 6 + 2 + 7 + 9 = 24

The number which is divisible by 9 next to 24 is 27

Required smallest number = 27 â€“ 24 = 3

Hence, the value of M is 3

13. In each of the following numbers, replace M by the smallest number to make resulting number divisible by 11

(i) 39 M 2

(ii) 3 M 422

(iii) 70975 M

(iv) 14 M 75

Solution:

(i) 39 M 2

The given number = 39 M 2

A number is divisible by 11, if the difference of sum of its digit in odd places from left side and sum of digits in even places from left side is divisible by 11

Sum of its digits in odd places = 3 + M

Sum of its digits in even places = 9 + 2 = 11

Difference:

11 â€“ (3 + M) = 0

11 â€“ 3 â€“ M = 0

8 â€“ M = 0

M = 8

Hence, the value of M is 8

(ii) 3 M 422

The given number = 3 M 422

A number is divisible by 11, if the difference of sum of its digit in odd places from left side and sum of digits in even places from left side is divisible by 11

Sum of its digits in odd places = 3 + 4 + 2 = 9

Sum of its digits in even places = M + 2 = 11

Difference:

9 â€“ (M + 2) = 0

9 – M – 2 = 0

9 â€“ 2 = M

M = 7

Hence, the value of M is 7

(iii) 70975 M

The given number is 70975 M

A number is divisible by 11, if the difference of sum of its digit in odd places from left side and sum of digits in even places from left side is divisible by 11

Sum of its digits in odd places = 7 + 9 + 5 = 21

Sum of its digits in even places = 0 + 7 + M = 7 + M

Difference:

21 â€“ (7 + M) = 0

21 = 7 + M

M = 14

Hence, the value of M is 14

(iv) 14 M 75

The given number is 14 M 75

A number is divisible by 11, if the difference of sum of its digit in odd places from left side and sum of digits in even places from left side is divisible by 11

Sum of its digits in odd places = 1 + M + 5

= 6 + M

Sum of its digits in even places = 4 + 7

Difference:

11 â€“ (6 + M) = 0

11 = 6 + M

M = 11 â€“ 6

M = 5

Hence, the value of M is 5

14. State, true or false:

(i) If a number is divisible by 4. It is divisible by 8

(ii) If a number is a factor 16 and 24, it is a factor of 48

(iii) If a number is divisible by 18, it is divisible by 3 and 6

(iv) If a divide b and c completely, then a divides (i) a + b (ii) a â€“ b also completely.

Solution:

(i) False

The number is divisible by 4, if tens and unit digit is divisible by 4

The number is divisible by 8, if hundreds, tens and unit digit is divisible by 8

(ii) True

As 16 and 24 are factors of 48

(iii) True

The product of 3 and 6 is 18, so if a number is divisible by 18, it is divisible by 3 and 6

(iv) True

If a divides b and c completely, then a divides a + b and a â€“ b completely

Hence, if a number is a factor of each of the two numbers, then it is a factor of their sum also
