For example: 528491=5+2+8+4+9+1=29=2+9=11=1+1=2 Is 528491 a prime number? Chosen Answer: David is right on, but the process is called “Casting Out Nines”. It leads to the remainder when the number is divided by 9 and works because 9 = 10-1 and our system is base 10. Similarly, “Casting Out Elevens” can be given. It is [...]

Chosen Answer: Let x represent the number 5(x + 2) +11 = 8x 5x + 10 + 11 = 8x 5x + 10 + 11 = 8x 5x + 21 = 8x 21 = 3x x = 7 by: ♥ɴוᴄᴏʟᴇ ɴɢᴜʏᴇɴ♥ on: 16th October 10
Chosen Answer: Nice question! An interesting test for divisibility by 11 is to alternately add and subtract the digits. The divisibility of the result by 11 determines the divisibility of the original number by 11. Effectively, you can separate the digits into two lists of length 4 and then 3, eg. [1, 3, 4, 2] [...]
How to solve & what’s the answer 2 this?: Four more than the quotient of a number and three is eleven?
It’s for my math corrects,- I did really bad on this test, I got an 80%- 18.5/23 problems- and I need to do the corrections because at my school you get half the points back. I usually do well w/ variables and stuff… but not this time Chosen Answer: Let x be the unknown number. [...]
A box contains eleven balls, numbered 1,2,3….10,11,11. if 6 balls are drawn simultaneously at random, what is?
A box contains eleven balls, numbered 1,2,3….10,11,11. if 6 balls are drawn simultaneously at random, what is the probability that the sum of the numbers on the balls drawn is odd? Chosen Answer: “eleven balls numbered 1,2,3 … 10, 11, 11″ either the numbers are 1 – 11 (no second 11) or some other number [...]
