From Brenda Meagher: I'm a 37 year old mother and i have returned to school for personal reasons. I was faced with this question. Choose any number less than 10, multiply it by 8547, then take your answer and multiply it by 13. I chose the number 8.

8547 x 8 -------- 68376

and

68376 x 13 --------- 205128 68376 --------- 888888

Any number chosen from 1 to 9 will result in the same form of answer.If the number two is used you will end up with 222,222.etc So my question is, is there another number that will results in the answers. Answered by Harley Weston.
