Q:

What smallest number of 6 digit is divisible by 111?

Smallest number of 6 digits is 100000

on dividing 100000 by 111 we get 100 as remainder

$\inline&space;\fn_jvn&space;\therefore$ Number to be added = (111 -100) = 11

$\inline&space;\fn_jvn&space;\therefore$ Required Number  = 100011

Q:

The sum of all two digit numbers divisible by 5 is

 A) 945 B) 678 C) 439 D) 568

Explanation:

Required numbers are 10,15,20,25,...,95
This is an A.P. in which a=10,d=5 and l=95.
Let the number of terms in it be n.Then t=95
So a+(n-1)d=95.
10+(n-1)*5=95,then n=18.
Required sum=n/2(a+l)=18/2(10+95)=945.
