Hi clciotola..

(493)(915)(381)(756)(29)

For example .....

lets take \(13 * 15\) ...

we get 195.... You can see that If you multiply any odd number with 5 the units digit of the result will be 5.Why? The last digit oof the odd number will be one of 1, 3, 5,7,9. If you multiply any of these digits with 5 you will get 5 as the units digit in the result.

Now lets take another example with an even number. take 12 * 15.

It is 180. Now 12 can be written as 2*6.Multiply 2 with 15 you will get 30.Now no matter what you multiply 30 with you will always get 0 in the units place.

So any even number when multiplied by 5 will give a result with 0 in the units place.

Lets get back to the question. If we muliptly 493 ,381 and 29 we will get an odd number

Let this result be x. so x is odd

If x is multiplied with an even number the result will be even right??(odd*even = even)

lets multiply x with 756. The result will be even.

Let this result be Y.

Now Y is an even number and you have to multiply it with 15. 15 has 5 in it.So the last digit in the result will be 0.

Hope this helps

Just multiply the digits in the units place for each term and you will get the answer. It should be 0. you got a 5 as a unit digit and an even number term. so the multiplication of this will definitely yield a 0. Answer has to be 0. I also tried it using the calculator and the answer is 0.

what is the units digit of (493) (915) (381) (756) (29)

a 0 b 1 c 4 d 5 e 6

any help to solve this in a fast way?

thank you!

I think the answer is A

If you observe the numbers we have a 5 and a two in the factors. If you multiply we will always get a zero in the units place no matter what the other numbers are.

Is this a official question?

Take 915 * 756, one has 6 and the other has 5 in units place. it will yield 0 (when multiplied 6*5 =30) at the end. Any number when multiplied with 10, 20, 30...100 would yield 0 in units place that is the case for this example.
