Using divisibility tests, determine which of the
following numbers are divisible by 11:(a) 5445

(b) 10824

(c) 7138965

(d) 70169308

(e) 10000001

**Solution: **

We know that a number is divisible by 11, if the
difference between the sum of the digits at odd places (from the right) and the
sum of the digits at even places (from the right) of the number is either 0 or
divisible by 11.

(a) Given number = 5445

The sum of the digits at odd places = 5 + 4 = 9

The sum of the digits at even places = 4 + 5 = 9

Difference = 9 – 9 = 0

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

(b) Given number = 10824

The sum of the digits at odd places = 4 + 8 + 1 = 13

The sum of the digits at even places = 2 + 0 = 2

Difference = 13 – 2 = 11, which is divisible by 11.

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

(c) Given number = 7138965

The sum of the digits at odd places = 5 + 9 + 3 + 7 = 24

The sum of the digits at even places = 6 + 8 + 1 = 15

Difference = 24 – 15 = 9, which is not divisible by 11.

Hence, the given number is not divisible by 11.

(d) Given number = 70169308

The sum of all the digits at odd places = 8 + 3 + 6 + 0 = 17

The sum of all the digits at even places = 0 + 9 + 1 + 7 = 17

Difference = 17 – 17 = 0

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

(e) Given number = 10000001

The sum of all the digits at odd places = 1 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 1

The sum of all the digits at even places = 0 + 0 + 0 + 1 = 1

Difference = 1 – 1 = 0

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

(f) Given number = 901153

The sum of all the digits at odd places = 3 + 1 + 0 = 4

The sum of all the digits at even places = 5 + 1 + 9 = 15

Difference = 15 – 4 = 11, which is divisible by 11.

Hence, the given number is divisible by 11.

**Ex 3.3 Class 6 Maths Question
5.**

Write the smallest digit and the greatest digit in
the blank space of each of the following numbers so that the number formed is
divisible by 3.(a) ___6724

(b) 4765___2

**Solution:
**We know that a number is divisible by 3, if the sum
of all the digits of the number is also divisible by 3.

(a) ___6724

The sum of the digits = 4 + 2 + 7 + 6 = 19

The smallest digit to be placed is blank space = 2

Then the sum = 19 + 2 = 21 which is divisible by 3.

The greatest digit to be placed in blank space = 8

Then the sum = 19 + 8 = 27 which is divisible by 3

Hence, the required digits are 2 and 8.

(b) 4765___2

The sum of digits = 2 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 4 = 24

The smallest digits to be place in blank space = 0

Then the sum = 24 + 0 = 24 which is divisible by 3.

The greatest digit to be placed in blank space = 9.

Then the sum = 24 + 9 = 33 which is divisible by 3.

Hence, the required digits are 0 and 9.

**Ex 3.3 Class 6 Maths Question
6.**

Write a digit in the blank space of each of the
following numbers so that the numbers formed is divisible by 11.(a) 92___389

(b) 8___9484

**Solution:
**(a) 92___389

The sum of the digits at odd places = 9 + 3 + 2 = 14

The sum of the digits at even places = 8 + ( ) + 9 = 17 + ( )

Difference = 17 + ( ) – 14 = ( ) + 3

For the given number to be divisible by 11,

( ) + 3 = 11

∴ ( ) = 11 – 3 = 8

So, the missing digit = 8

Hence, the required number is 928389.

(b) 8___9484

The sum of the digits at odd places = 4 + 4 + ( ) = 8 + ( )

The sum of the digits at even places = 8 + 9 + 8 = 25

∴ Difference = 25 – [8 + ( )]

= 25 – 8 – ( ) = 17 – ( )

For the given number to be divisible by 11,

17 – ( ) = 11

∴ 17 – 11 = ( ) or ( ) = 6

So, the missing digit = 6

Hence, the required number is 869484.
