Grade 6 math. I am a student Question. I have 6 digits. 100,000th digit is one less than my ones digit, eight greater than my 1,000's digit, twice my tens digit and four times my 100s digit. My 10,000s digit is 0 What is my number? Explain. Thanks Bob. |

Hi Bob, On first reading the question the only digit I know for sure is the 10,000s digit which is 0, so the number looks like
Reading again I see that the 100,000s digit must be even since it is twice the tens digit. The 100,000s digit is also 8 greater than the 1,000s digit and hence the 1,000s digit can only be 0 or 1. (If the 1,000s digit is 2 or more then 8 plus the 1,000s digit is a two digit number.) Can you finish the problem now? Penny |
