QUESTION: 7

What is the units digit of 3146732 × 9764523 × (321685 + 8652)479?

Solution:

Step 1: Question statement and Inferences

We need to find the units digit of all the terms in the expression 3146732 × 9764523 × (321685 + 8652)479

Step 2: Finding required values

Given:

We Know,

2 → 2, 4, 8, 6 (Corresponding powers: 4m +1,4m+2, 4m +3, 4m)

5 → 5: Every power will have the same last digit.

7 → 7, 9, 3, 1 (Corresponding powers: 4m +1,4m+2, 4m +3, 4m)

8 → 8, 4, 2, 6 (Corresponding powers: 4m +1,4m+2, 4m +3, 4m)

Considering the first term: 3146732

The unit digit of this term will be determined by 732

32 = 4*8

-->  32 is of the form 4m

-->  7’s power is of the form 4m

-->  The units digit of 732 will be 1

-->  The units digit of 3146732 is 1

Considering the second term: 9764523

The units digit of this term will be determined by 523

The units digit of 5 raised to the power anything is 5.

-->  The units digit of 523 is 5

-->  The units digit of 9764523 is 5

Considering the third term: 321685

The units digit of this term will be determined by 85

5 = 4*1 +1

-->  5 is of the form 4m +1

-->  8’s power is of the form 4m +1

-->  The units digit of 85 will be 8

-->  The units digit of 321685 is 8

The units digit of the last term, 8652, is 2

Step 3: Calculating the final answer

Units digit of 3146732 × 9764523 × (321685 + 8652)479 = 1 × 5 (8 + 2)479 = 1 × 5 (0)479  = 1 × 5 × 0 = 0

QUESTION: 8

Find the rightmost non-zero digit of the number 3456373003725

Solution:

Step 1: Question statement and Inferences

We are given the number 3456373003725, and we have to find the rightmost non-zero digit of this number. We know that the rightmost digit is the unit digit of a number.

Now, the expression can be written as follows:

3456373003725 = (345673 * 100)3725

= 3456733725 * 1003725

Now, we know that the rightmost non-zero digit of the number will come from the expression 3456733725.

Also, the unit digit of the expression 3456733725 = the unit digit of 33725

Thus, we have to find the unit digit of 33725.

Step 2: Finding required values

We know that every 4th power of 3 has the same unit digit and cycles of power of 3 are 3, 9, 7, and 1.

34m + 1 = 3

34m + 2 = 9

34m + 3 = 7

34m = 1

Now, 3725 = 3700 + 25

= 4*k + 4*6 + 1                         (Since every number which is a multiple of 100 is a multiple of 4)

So, 3725 = 4m + 1, where m is some positive integer

Thus, the unit digit of 33725 = the unit digit of 34m + 1 = 3

Step 3: Calculating the final answer

So, the rightmost non-zero digit of the number 3456373003725 = 3.

QUESTION: 9

If p is a positive integer, what is the units digit of Z, if Z = (1044p + 1) * (277p + 1) * (93p + 2) * (3096p) ?

Solution:

Step 1: Question statement and Inferences

We are given that Z = (1044p + 1) * (277p + 1) * (93p + 2) * (3096p). We have to find the units digit of Z.

Here we can say that:

The unit digit of Z = The units digit of the product of the unit digits of the given numbers

Now, we also know that the unit digit of any power of a number depends only on the unit digit of the number. Thus, we can write the expression as:

Z = (44p + 1) * (7p + 1) * (3p + 2) * (96p

Step 2: Finding required values

Z = (44p + 1) * (7p + 1) * (3p + 2) * (96p

Next, let’s find the unit digit of the individual expressions:

Unit digit of 44p + 1:

Every second power of 4 has the same unit digit.

Cycles of powers of 4 are 4, 6, 4, 6 …

So, unit digit of 44p + 1 = 4      (Since 4p + 1 is an odd number and every odd power of 4 has the unit digit as 4)

Unit digit of 96p:

Every second power of 9 has the same unit digit.

Cycles of powers of 9 are 9, 1, 9, 1 …

So, unit digit of 96p = 1      (Since 6p is an even number and every even power of 9 has the unit digit 1)

Now, the cyclicity of the numbers 3 and 7 is 4. So, we can’t decide the unit digit of the expression 3p+2 and 7p+1 since we don’t know the value of p. However, the product of these numbers can be further solved as follows:

7p + 1 * 3p + 2 = 7p + 1 * 3p + 1 * 3

= (7*3)p + 1 * (3)           (Since am * bm = (ab)m )

= (21)p + 1 * (3)

Now, we know that the unit digit of the expression 21p+1 will always be 1 since any power of 1 always gives a unit digit 1.

Thus, the unit digit of (21)p + 1 * (3) = 1 * 3 = 3

Step 3: Calculating the final answer

Now, let’s plug in all the values in the expression for Z.

Z = 4 * 3 * 1 = 12

So, the unit digit of Z will be 2.

QUESTION: 10

If p and q are positive integers and X = 6p + 7q+23, what is the units digit of X?

(1) q = 2p – 11

(2) q2 – 10q + 9 = 0

Solution:

Steps 1 & 2: Understand Question and Draw Inferences

We are given that X = 6p + 7q+23, and we have to find the unit digit of X. The numbers p and q both are positive integers. Now, the unit digit of X will be the sum of the unit digits of 6p and 7q+23.

So, we have to find the unit digit of 6p and 7q+23.

Now, we know that the unit digit of 6 raised to any integer power is 6. So, the unit digit of 6p is 6.

And the cyclicity of 7 is 4 i.e. every 4th power of 7 has the same unit digit and cycles of power of 7 are 7, 9, 3, and 1.

So, the unit digit of the expression:

X = 6p + 7q+23 = (Unit Digit of 6p) + (Unit digit of 7q+23)

= 6 + (Unit digit of 7q+23)

So, the unit digit of 7q+23 will depend on the value of q. We have to find the value of q to determine the unit digit of X.

Step 3: Analyze Statement 1

Statement 1 says: q = 2p – 11

However, since we don’t know the value of p, we can’t determine the value of q.

Hence, statement I is not sufficient to answer the question: What is the unit digit of X?

Step 4: Analyze Statement 2

Statement 2 says:

q2 – 10q + 9 = 0

q2 – 9q -q + 9 = 0

(q – 9) (q – 1) = 0

Thus, q= 1, 9

Let’s consider both the values one by one:

1. If q = 1

In this case, the expression 7q+23 becomes:

71+23 = 724

Since the cyclicity of 7 is 4 i.e. every 4th power of 7 has the same unit digit and cycles of power of 7 are 7, 9, 3, and 1.

And,

24 = 4*6

So, the unit digit of 724 = 1

2.  If q = 9

In this case, the expression 7q+23 becomes:

79+23 = 732

Since the cyclicity of 7 is 4 i.e. every 4th power of 7 has the same unit digit and cycles of power of 7 are 7, 9, 3, and 1.

And,

32 = 4*8

So, the unit digit of 732 = 1

So, in both the cases we get the unit digit of 7q+23 as 1. As derived in the first step, the unit digit of X

= 6 + (Unit digit of 7q+23) = 6 + 1 = 7

So, statement (2) alone is sufficient to answer the question: What is the unit digit of X?

Step 5: Analyze Both Statements Together (if needed)

Since statement (2) alone is sufficient to answer the question, we don’t need to perform this step.

QUESTION: 11

If the number 653 xy is divisible by 90, then (x + y) = ?

Solution:

90 = 10 x 9
Clearly, 653xy is divisible by 10, so y = 0
Now, 653x0 is divisible by 9.
So, (6 + 5 + 3 + x + 0) = (14 + x) is divisible by 9. So, x = 4.
Hence, (x + y) = (4 + 0) = 4.

QUESTION: 12

3897 x 999 = ?

Solution:

3897 x 999= 3897 x (1000 - 1)
= 3897 x 1000 - 3897 x 1
= 3897000 - 3897
= 3893103.

QUESTION: 13

What is the unit digit in 7105 ?

Solution:

Unit digit in 7105 = Unit digit in [ (74)26 x 7 ]
But, unit digit in (74)26 = 1 Unit digit in 7105 = (1 x 7) = 7

QUESTION: 14

Which of the following numbers will completely divide (461 + 462 + 463 + 464) ?

Solution:

(461 + 462 + 463 + 464) = 461 x (1 + 4 + 42 + 43) = 461 x 85
= 460 x (4 x 85)
= (460 x 340), which is divisible by 10.

QUESTION: 15

106 x 106 - 94 x 94 = ?

Solution:

106 x 106 - 94 x 94= (106)2 - (94)2
= (106 + 94)(106 - 94)
[Ref: (a2 - b2) = (a + b)(a - b)]
= (200 x 12)
= 2400.
