Ans:
(a) 5445
→ Sum of the digits at odd places = 4 + 5 = 9
→ Sum of the digits at even places = 4 + 5 = 9
→ Difference of both sums = 9 – 9 = 0
Since the difference is 0, therefore, the number is divisible by 11.
(b) 10824
→ Sum of the digits at odd places = 4 + 8 +1 = 13
→ Sum of the digits at even places = 2 + 0 = 2
→ Difference of both sums = 13 – 2 = 11

Since the difference is 11, therefore, the number is divisible by 11.

Ques 5: Write the smallest digit and the largest digit in the blanks space of each of the following numbers so that the number formed is divisibly by 3:
(a) __________ 6724
(b) 4765 __________ 2
Ans: (a) We know that a number is divisible by 3 if the sum of all digits is divisible by 3.
Therefore, Smallest digit : 2 → 26724 = 2 + 6 + 7 + 2 + 4 = 21
Largest digit: 8 → 86724 = 8 + 6 + 7 + 2 + 4 = 27
(b) We know that a number is divisible by 3 if the sum of all digits is divisible by 3.
Therefore,
Smallest digit: 0 → 476502 = 4 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 0 + 2 = 24
Largest digit: 9 → 476592 = 4 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 0 + 2 = 33

Ques 6: Write the smallest digit and the largest digit in the blanks space of each of the following numbers so that the number formed is divisibly by 11:
(a) 92 __________ 389
(b) 8 __________ 9484
Ans: (a) We know that a number is divisible by 11 if the difference of the sum of the digits at odd places and that of even places should be either 0 or 11.
Therefore, 928389 →
Odd places = 9 + 8 + 8 = 25
Even places = 2 + 3 + 9 = 14
Difference = 25 – 14 = 11
(b) We know that a number is divisible by 11 if the difference of the sum of the digits at odd places and that of even places should be either 0 or 11.
Therefore, 869484 →
Odd places = 8 + 9 + 8 = 25
Even places = 6 + 4 + 4 = 14
Difference = 25 – 14 = 11
