Problem

Find the sum of all positive two-digit integers that are divisible by each of their digits.

Solution 1

Let our number be $10a + b$, $a,b \neq 0$. Then we have two conditions: $10a + b \equiv 10a \equiv 0 \pmod{b}$ and $10a + b \equiv b \pmod{a}$, or $a$ divides into $b$ and $b$ divides into $10a$. Thus $b = a, 2a,$ or $5a$ (note that if $b = 10a$, then $b$ would not be a digit).

  • For $b = a$, we have $n = 11a$ for nine possibilities, giving us a sum of $11 \cdot \frac {9(10)}{2} = 495$.
  • For $b = 2a$, we have $n = 12a$ for four possibilities (the higher ones give $b > 9$), giving us a sum of $12 \cdot \frac {4(5)}{2} = 120$.
  • For $b = 5a$, we have $n = 15a$ for one possibility (again, higher ones give $b > 9$), giving us a sum of $15$.

If we ignore the case $b = 0$ as we have been doing so far, then the sum is $495 + 120 + 15 = \boxed{630}$.

Solution 2

Using casework, we can list out all of these numbers: \[11+12+15+22+24+33+36+44+48+55+66+77+88+99=\boxed{630}.\]

Solution 3

To further expand on solution 2, it would be tedious to test all $90$ two-digit numbers. We can reduce the amount to look at by focusing on the tens digit. First, we cannot have any number that is a multiple of $10$. We also note that any number with the same digits is a number that satisfies this problem. This gives \[11, 22, 33, ... 99.\] We start from each of these numbers and constantly add the digit of the tens number of the respective number until we get a different tens digit. For example, we look at numbers $11, 12, 13, ... 19$ and numbers $22, 24, 26, 28$. This heavily reduces the numbers we need to check, as we can deduce that any number with a tens digit of $5$ or greater that does not have two of the same digits is not a valid number for this problem. This will give us the numbers from solution 2.

Solution 4

In this solution, we will do casework on the ones digit. Before we start, let's make some variables. Let $a$ be the ones digit, and $b$ be the tens digit. Let $n$ equal our number. Our number can be expressed as $10b+a$. We can easily see that $b|a$, since $b|n$, and $b|10b$. Therefore, $b|(n-10b)$. Now, let's start with the casework.

Case 1: $a=1$ Since $b|a$, $b=1$. From this, we get that $n=11$ satisfies the condition.

Case 2: $a=2$ We either have $b=1$, or $b=2$. From this, we get that $n=12$ and $n=22$ satisfy the condition.

Case 3: $a=3$ We have $b=3$. From this, we get that $n=33$ satisfies the condition. Note that $b=1$ was not included because $3$ does not divide $13$.

Case 4: $a=4$ We either have $b=2$ or $b=4$. From this, we get that $n=24$ and $n=44$ satisfy the condition. $b=1$ was not included for similar reasons as last time.

Case 5: $a=5$ We either have $b=1$ or $b=5$. From this, we get that $n=15$ and $n=55$ satisfy the condition.

Continuing with this process up to $a=9$, we get that $n$ could be $11, 12, 22, 33, 24, 44, 15, 55, 36, 66, 77, 48, 88, 99$. Summing, we get that the answer is $\boxed{630}$. A clever way to sum would be to group the multiples of $11$ together to get $11+22+\dots+99=(45)(11)=495$ and then add the remaining $12+24+15+36+48=135$.
