If x, y, and z are three-digit positive integers and if x = y + z, is the hundreds digit of x equal to the sum of the hundreds digits of y and z ?

(1) The tens digit of x is equal to the sum of the tens digits of y and z. (2) The units digit of x is equal to the sum of the units digits of y and z.

Is it safe to conclude that the place value of an integer number (represented as a sum of different integers), depends upon only the preceding place value of integers being summed up?

for eg: x=1000a+100b+10c+1d y=1000e+100f+10g+1h z=1000l+100m+10n+1p if z=x+y then

is l only dependent upon value of b and f or some other parameters also??

Let x= a b c y = d e f z= g h i

x= y+z

1 --> b= e+h which in turn implies c=f+i and so a=d+g (and this implies there is no carry forward in the addition of units and tens place digit of the two numbers)

2--> c=f+i which does not tell us if b= e+h(as there could be a carry forward bcos of this addition to the hundred place)

x = ABC y = DEF z = GHI

DEF +GHI _____ ABC

Question: Is D + G = A? This is true if there is no carry-over from the tens digits' sum.

1. E + H = B, This means there is no carry over to hundreds position. SUFFICIENT. 2. C + F = I, This means there is no carry over to tens position BUT we do not know if there will be a carry over during the sum of tens. INSUFFICIENT.

Your problem is very simple : "x, y, and z are three-digit positive integers". x cannot be 1085, it must be \leq{999}

(1) The tens digit of x is equal to the sum of the tens digits of y and z. (2) The units digit of x is equal to the sum of the units digits of y and z.

Is there an alternative approach for this problem?

The question basically asks whether there is a carry over 1 from the tens place to the hundreds place.

Consider the following examples: (i) 123 234 357

Here when we add the tens digits 2 and 3 there is no carry over 1 from the tens place to the hundreds place, thus the hundreds digit of x (3) is equal to the sum of the hundreds digits of y (1) and z (2).

(ii) 153 147 300

Here when we add the tens digits 5 and 4 and carry over 1 from the units place, we get 10, so we have carry over 1 from the tens place to the hundreds place, thus the hundreds digit of x (3) does NOT equal to the sum of the hundreds digits of y (1) and z (1).

The first statement implies that there is no carry over 1 from the tens place to the hundreds place, thus the hundreds digit of x is equal to the sum of the hundreds digits of y and z. Sufficient.

The second statement does not provide us with sufficient information about carry over 1 from the tens place to the hundreds place.

Please Elaborate

The tens digit of y is 9 and the tens digit of z is 9 --> 9+9=18 not 8.

Question is demanding 100 digit of Y + 100 digit of Z is equal to 100 digit of X, means there will not be any carryover from the sum of tens digit of Y and Z. therefore from Option 1, sum of tens digit of Y and Z equal to of X means there will not be any carryforward from here to 100 digit of Y and Z. therefore option 1 is sufficient to answer. Option 2 unit digit sum is equal, will not give any indication whether tens digit will not carryforward any to hundered. therefore this is not sufficient.

The concern here is the sum of the tenth digit might have a carryover, so the sum of the hundredth digit on Y & Z might not be equal to X's hundredth digit. So A is the right answer.

so this is sort of a number property? _________________

Let the 3 digit numbers be, x=ABC y=DEF z=GHI

Now, its given that DEF + GHI _____ ABC _____

Statement 1---- says that E+H=B. Substitute any digit for E and H, you will find that D+G must be equal to A. Sufficient Statement2.......says F+I=C. E and H can be anything and in turn D and G can be anything. Not sufficient. _________________

my confusion is the following regarding (1). maybe i am not reading the question right, but assume the following:

y: 6 4 3 z: 4 4 2

x: 1 0 8 5

so, the tens digit of x is equal to the sum of the tens digit of y + z. however, the hundreds digit, 6 + 4 = 1 0. The hundreds digit of x would be 0. can someone please explain? thank you

For Statement I my problem pertains to the fact that the ten's digit of x will be expressed as ten's digit of y + ten's digit of z. But if y=190 ,z=190 then x =380 the 1 does carry over from the ten's digit. Although the ten's digit of x is the sum of ten's digit of y and z.
