Question

When any natural number is divided by 10 what is the sum of all possible remainders 


Solution

Consider all the natural numbers. they can end with any one of these 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 or 0. 
if a number ending with 1 is divided by 10, the remainder is 1, 
if a number ending with 2 is divided by 10, the remainder is 2,
similarly see all the numbers ending with 3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9......u will see that the remainders are 3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9 respectively.
if the number ends with 0 there is no remainder when divided by 10.
Thus when any natural number is divided by 10, the sum of all possible remainders is 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9 = 45
