In a certain infinite sequence n(1)=7,n(2)=70,n(3)=700,n(x)=10*n(x-1)

Is the integer j a factor of every member of n?

S1. j is a prime number.

S2. j is a factor of more than one member of the sequence

S1. j is a prime number.

S2. j is a factor of more than one member of the sequence

1) insuff - 7 yes, 5 and 2 no
2) 1 and 7 factors of every member, 2,5, 10, 70 etc are factors of more than one member but not all

1)+2) insuff, 7 yes and 5 and 2 no again

Shouldn't the general Xth term be n(x) = [10^(x-1)]*n.

Agree with sparky, E.

i think the n(x)=n*(10^(x-1))

E it should be...

we have 3 primes, 7, 5 and 2

it could be anyone...
