90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96
Numbers Factors:

• 90 = 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 15, 18, 30, 45, 90
• 91 =  1, 7, 13, 91
• 92 = 1, 2, 4, 23, 46, 92
• 93 = 1, 3, 31, 93
• 94 = 1, 2, 47, 94
• 95 = 1, 5, 19, 95
• 96 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 96

(ix) Write a digit in the blank space of each of the following numbers so that the number formed is divisible by 11:
(a) 92 ___ 389
(b) 8 ___9484
Ans:
(a) 92_389
Let a be placed in the blank.
Sum of the digits at odd places = 9 + 3 + 2 = 14
Sum of the digits at even places = 8 + + 9 = 17 + a
Difference = 17 + a − 14 = 3 + a
For a number to be divisible by 11, this difference should be zero or a multiple of 11.
If 3 + a = 0, then
a = − 3
However, it cannot be negative.
The closest multiple of 11, which is near to 3, has to be taken. It is 11 itself.
3 + a = 11
a = 8
Therefore, the required digit is 8.

(b) 8_9484
Let a be placed in the blank.
Sum of the digits at odd places = 4 + 4 + a = 8 + a
Sum of the digits at even places = 8 + 9 + 8 = 25
Difference = 25 − (8 + a)
= 17 − a
For a number to be divisible by 11, this difference should be zero or a multiple of 11.
If 17 − a = 0, then
a = 17
This is not possible.
A multiple of 11 has to be taken. Taking 11, we obtain
17 − a = 11
a = 6
Therefore, the required digit is 6.

(x) A number is divisible by both 5 and 12. By which another number will that number be always divisible?
Ans: Factors of 5 = 1, 5
Factors of 12 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12
As the common factor of these numbers is 1, the given two numbers are co-prime and the number will also be divisible by their product, i.e. 60, and the factors of 60, i.e., 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 60.

(xi) A number is divisible by 12. By what other number will that number be divisible?
Ans: Since the number is divisible by 12, it will also be divisible by its factors i.e., 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12. Clearly, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 are numbers other than 12 by which this number is also divisible.

(xii) The product of three consecutive numbers is always divisible by 6. Verify this statement with the help of some examples.
Ans: 2 * 3 * 4 = 24, which is divisible by 6
9 * 10 * 11 = 990, which is divisible by 6
20 * 21 * 22 = 9240, which is divisible by 6

(xiii) The sum of two consecutive odd numbers is divisible by 4. Verify this statement with the help of some examples.
Ans: 3 + 5 = 8, which is divisible by 4
15 + 17 = 32, which is divisible by 4
19 + 21 = 40, which is divisible by 4

(xiv) Determine if 25110 is divisible by 45.
[Hint: 5 and 9 are co-prime numbers. Test the divisibility of the number by 5 and 9].
Ans: 45 = 5 * 9
Factors of 5 = 1, 5
Factors of 9 = 1, 3, 9
Therefore, 5 and 9 are co-prime numbers.
Since the last digit of 25110 is 0, it is divisible by 5.
Sum of the digits of 25110 = 2 + 5 + 1 + 1 + 0 = 9
As the sum of the digits of 25110 is divisible by 9, therefore, 25110 is divisible by 9.
Since the number is divisible by 5 and 9 both, it is divisible by 45.
