Question

Pick a two digit number with distinct digits. Now, reverse the digits. Subtract the smaller number from the larger number. The difference thus obtained is always divisible by



A
3
loader
B
5

C
7

D
9

Solution

The correct options are
A 3
D 9

Let the two digit number be ab.
ab=10a+b and
its reverse will be 10b+a

10a+b(10b+a) = 9a9b 

We could also have
10b+a(10a+b) = 9b9a

which would yield 9(ab) or 9(ba).

In both the cases, the number thus obtained will be a multiple of 9 and thus will be divisible by 9. Since 3 is a factor of 9, the number obtained will be divisible by 3 as well.
