Question 6.

Write digit in the blank space of each of the following numbers so that the number is divisible by 11:

**(a)** 92 __ 389

**(b)** 8 __ 9484.

Solution :

**(a)** 92 __ 389

Sum of the given digits (at odd places) from the right = 9 + 3 + 2= 14

Sum of the given digits (at even places) from the right = 8 + required digit + 9 = required digit + 17

Difference of these sums = required digit + 3 For the above difference to be divisible by 11, required digit = 8.

Hence, the required number is 92 8 389.

**(b)** 8 __ 9484
