What is the tens digit of positive integer x ?(1) x divided by 100 has a remainder of 30 > x=100q+30: 30, 130, 230, ... as you can see every such number has 3 as the tens digit. Sufficient. (2) x divided by 110 has a remainder of 30 > x=110p+30: 30, 140, 250, 360, ... so, there are more than 1 value of the tens digit possible. Not sufficient. Answer: A.

QUESTION :How exactly are 30, 130, 230 computed? If q=0, then x=30; If q=1, then x=130; If q=2, then x=230; If q=3, then x=330; ... All these numbers when divided by 100 gives the remainder of 30. Generally, if \(x\) and \(y\) are positive integers, there exist unique integers \(q\) and \(r\), called the quotient and remainder, respectively, such that \(y =divisor*quotient+remainder= xq + r\) and \(0\leq{r}<x\).For example, when 15 is divided by 6, the quotient is 2 and the remainder is 3 since \(15 = 6*2 + 3\). Notice that \(0\leq{r}<x\) means that remainder is a nonnegative integer and always less than divisor.This formula can also be written as \(\frac{y}{x} = q + \frac{r}{x}\). You really need to brush up fundamentals: Hope this helps.

(1) x divided by 100 has a remainder of 30. (2) x divided by 110 has a remainder of 30. Thank you for this question, but what are choices A, B, C , D & E? This is a data sufficiency question. Options for DS questions are always the same. The data sufficiency problem consists of a question and two statements, labeled (1) and (2), in which certain data are given. You have to decide whether the data given in the statements are sufficient for answering the question. Using the data given in the statements, plus your knowledge of mathematics and everyday facts (such as the number of days in July or the meaning of the word counterclockwise), you must indicate whether— A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked. B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked. C. BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked. D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked. E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed. I suggest you to go through the following post ALL YOU NEED FOR QUANT. Hope this helps.
