What is the remainder when the two-digit, positive integer x is divided by 3? (1) The sum of the digits of x is 5 \(14 - 1 + 4 = 5 = 14/3 =\) Reminder - \(2\)
\(32 - 3 + 2 = 5 - 32/3 =\) Reminder -\(2\)
As we are getting consistent 2 as the reminder this statement is sufficient.
Hence, (1) ===== is SUFFICIENT(2) The remainder when x is divided by 9 is 5Possible numbers when divided by 9 to give 5 as the reminder are:
23, 32, 41..... If we divided them by 3 again we get a consistent reminder of 2
Hence, (2) ===== is SUFFICIENTHence, Answer is DYou liked the answer? Appreciate with a Kudos _________________
