TopNewestOn Brilliant there are question related to this number. This number can found out without hit-n-trial method.

Clearly the 5th and 10th digits are 5 & 0 respectively,

Now 4th digit can only be from 2 & 6 as 3rd digit is odd and for the number to be divisible by 4 its last two digits must be divisible by 4,

Sum of first 3, next 3 & next 3 digits must be divisible by 3,

Hence,

We get the following combinations for 4th,5th &6th digits - 258 or 654,

Now with use of divisibility of 8 we can figure out 6th,7th & 8th digits,

With help of less hard work we can figure out the number.

I would like to clarify your solution-We know that a number is divisible by \(4\) when last two digits are divisible by \(4\) and there are no two digit numbers having \(4\) and \(8\) as last digits and are divisible by \(4\) therefore for \(4^{th}\) digit we can say that at the \(4^{th}\) place only \(2\) or \(4\) are possible digits.

Similarly , as \(8\) is divisible by \(4\) the \(8^{th}\) digit would be either \(2\) or \(4\). Then, as

\(Akshay\)told we can proceed to get the answer.Log in to reply
