4. Using divisibility tests, determine which of the following numbers are divisible by 11:
(a) 5445
(b) 10824
(c) 7138965
(d) 70169308
(e) 10000001
(f) 901153


Answer :

(a) Given number = 5445
Sum of the digits at odd places = 5 + 4 = 9
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
Sum of the digits at odd places = 4 + 8 + 1 = 13
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
Sum of the digits at odd places = 5 + 9 + 3 + 7 = 24
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
Sum of all the digits at odd places = 8 + 3 + 6 + 0 = 17
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
Sum of all the digits at odd places = 1 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 1
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.
