If x, y, and z are threedigit 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??

(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 234357 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 147300 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. Answer: A. Hope it's clear.

x = ABC y = DEF z = GHI
DEF +GHI _____ ABC
Question: Is D + G = A? This is true if there is no carryover 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.
Answer: A

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

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) and so the answer is A

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.

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.

and so the answer is A 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.
Please Elaborate

Please Elaborate The tens digit of y is 9 and the tens digit of z is 9 > 9+9=18 not 8. Hope it's clear.

Hi Guys,
I thought statement #1 can't be correct alone because (I thought) we must know that BOTH the unit & the tens digits do not carry over:
i.e.
153 147 300
vs
152 147 299
Don't we need to know that both to confirm that the hundreds digit is a 3 rather than 2?

Ok let me clarify my question: 153 147300 In this case the hundreds digit became 3 because the unit total 10 > carries 1 to the tens digit > tens digit adds to 10, so carries 1 to the hundreds digit. The hundreds digit thus = 3 vs 152 147299 In this case the hundreds digit remains 2 because the unit total didn't exceed 9 > nothing carries over to the tens digit (i.e. tens digit remains 9), The hundreds digit thus = remains 2 So don't we need to know the unit digit AND the tens digit to confirm whether the hundreds digit will remain 2 or pushed to 3? (I'm not sure why I'm just not getting it!!)

If the 10's digit of x is equal to the sum of the 10's digit of Y and Z, then it implies that there was no carry over from the units digits. Thus statement 2 does not provide any additional information.
In other words, if there IS a carry over from the unit's digits, the 10's digit of x will not equal to the sum of the tens 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.
Target question: Is the hundreds digit of x equal to the sum of the hundreds digits of y and z ?Notice that there are essentially 3 ways for the hundreds digit of x to be different from the sum of the hundreds digits of y and z Scenario #1: the hundreds digits of y and z add to more than 9. For example, 600 + 900 = 1500. HOWEVER, we can rule out this scenario because we're told that x, y, and z are threedigit integers Scenario #2: the tens digits of y and z add to more than 9. For example, 141 + 172 = 313. Scenario #3: the tens digits of y and z add to 9, AND the units digits of y and z add to more than 9. For example, 149 + 159 = 308 Statement 1: The tens digit of x is equal to the sum of the tens digits of y and z.This rules out scenarios 2 and 3 (plus we already ruled out scenario 1). So, it must be the case that the hundreds digit of x equals to the sum of the hundreds digits of y and zSince we can answer the target question with certainty, statement 1 is SUFFICIENT Statement 2: The units digit of x is equal to the sum of the units digits of y and z.This rules out scenario 3, but not scenario 2. Consider these two conflicting cases: Case a: y = 100, z = 100 and x = 200, in which case the hundreds digit of x equals the sum of the hundreds digits of y and zCase b: y = 160, z = 160 and x = 320, in which case the hundreds digit of x does not equal the sum of the hundreds digits of y and zSince we cannot answer the target question with certainty, statement 2 is NOT SUFFICIENT Answer = Cheers, Brent
