\(N = 57*10^P\)

When N is divided by 9, 10^P will always give a remainder of 1.
Hence, N becomes 57*1 = 57/9 = 3.

B is the answer.

Solution



Given:
    • N= \(57* 10^p\)
    • p is a positive integer.

To find:
    • The remainder when N is divided by 9.

Approach and Working:
    • N= \(57* 10^p\)
    • \((\frac{N}{9})_R = (\frac{{57* 10^P}}{9})_R\)
    • = \((\frac{57}{9})_R * (\frac{{10^p}}{9})_R\)
    • = 3 *1=3

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B
