SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 2 - Question 1

If X and Y are the two digits of the number 347XY such that the number is completely divisible by 80, then what is the value of X + Y?       (SSC CGL 2017)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 2 - Question 1

347XY as 347X0. Since 8 is a factor of 80.
347X0 is divisible by 8. It means last three digits 7X0 is divisible by 8.
Hence, X is 2 or 6
if X = 6, number is 34760. But this is not divisible by 80.
if X = 2, number is 34720, which is divisible by 80.
Therefore, number is 34720 with X = 2 and Y = 0.
∴ x + y = 2 + 0 = 2.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 2 - Question 2

What least value must be assigned to '*' so that the numbers 451*603 is exactly divisible by 9?        (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2016)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 2 - Question 2

To divide 451 * 603 by 9
(4 + 5 + 1 + * + 6 + 0 + 3) = (19 + *)
(19 + *) must be multiple of 9
∴ 19 + * = 27
* = 8

= 24200

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 2 - Question 6

The smallest five digit number which is divisible by 12, 18 and 21 is :       (SSC CHSL 2015)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 2 - Question 6

Lowest 5 digit number = 10,000
The number which is divisible by 12, 18 and 21 is LCM of 12, 18, 12 which is 252.
10000/252 gives 172 as remainder
So, 252 – 172 = 80
10,000 + 80 = 10080
If 10080 when divided by 12, 18 and 21 gives 0 as remainder
So, 10080 is the least 5–digit number.
