“the sum of the digits should leave 4 as the remainder on division by 9”

anonymousJuly 14, 2009 at 6:10 pm

Nicely done, this is the method I was looking for!

RahulJuly 14, 2009 at 7:42 pm

guys could you elaborate on the method ?

HariJuly 15, 2009 at 4:57 am

First one is 5^10 gives a remainder 4 on division by 9. only one option gives the same. Hint: Whenever we talk about digit sum, think of modulo 9.

Second 1025/1024-1=1/2^10=0.0009675625

Hence 5^10=10^10/1024=9765625

hence sum of digits is 40.

anupJuly 15, 2009 at 4:34 pm

Rahul…it is always required ro see in terms of 9…

PrateekJuly 15, 2009 at 5:47 pm

it helps to think in terms of modulo 9

as divisibility rule of 9 talks about sum of digits

RahulJuly 15, 2009 at 5:50 pm
