BOOKMARKED
If in a six-digit integer N, F(k) is the value of the k-th digit, is N divisible by 7 (For example, F(4) is the value of the hundreds digit of N )?

(1) F(1) = F(4), F(2) = F(5), F(3) = F(6)
(2) F(1) = F(2) = ... = F(6)

(C) 2008 GMAT Club - m15#29

SOLUTION:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Statements (1) and (2) by themselves are sufficient. S1 tells us that the last three digits of N are the same as the first three digits: N = abcabc . Note that N = abc*1000 + abc = abc*1001 . As 1001 is divisible by 7, N is also divisible by 7.
The correct answer is D.

I believe there is an error in this question.

If, as it says, F(4) is the value of the hundreds digit, then F(1) is the value of the decimal digit of N.

Given that N is an integer, then F(1)=0.

F(1)=F(2)=F(3)=F(4)=F(5)=F(6)=0 --> N=0 and it is not a 6 digit integer. This contradicts the question stem.

Or am I missing something?

Hi Bunnel,

I also have a doubt here. if f(4) is hundreads digit as given in question then how f(1) can be units digit.

Please provide your comments on this.

Thanks.

F(1) is the value of HUNDRED THOUSANDS digit not the UNITS digit.

123,456
1 - HUNDRED THOUSANDS
2 - TEN THOUSANDS
3 - THOUSANDS
4 - HUNDREDS
5 - TENS
6 - UNITS

Hope it's clear.
