CBSE NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 16:

Question-1:

If 21y^5 is a multiple of 9, where y is a digit, what is the value of y?

Solution:

Since 21y5 is a multiple of 9.
Therefore according to the divisibility rule of 9, the sum of all the digits should be a multiple of 9.
Therefore, 2+1+y+5=8+y
8y-= 9
y = 1
This is possible when 8+y is any one of these numbers 0, 9, 18, 27, and so on .......
However, since y is a single digit number, this sum can be 9 only. Therefore, y should be 1 only.

Question-2:

If 31z5 is a multiple of 9, where z is a digit, what is the value of z? You will find that there are two answers for the last problem. Why is this so?

Solution:

Since, 31z5 is a multiple of 9.
Therefore according to the divisibility rule of 9, the sum of all the digits should be a multiple of
9.
Therefore, 3+1+z+5=9+z
9 +z=9
z =0
If 3+1+z+5=9+z
Hence 0 and 9 are two possible answers.

Question-3:

Find the value of the following letters. Solution:

Here, we observe that B = 5 so that 7 + 5 =12.
Putting 2 at ones place and carry over 1 and A = 2, we get
2 + 3 + 1 =6
Hence A = 2 and B =5
