Problem
Let be a -digit number, and let and be the quotient and the remainder, respectively, when is divided by . For how many values of is divisible by ?
Solution 1
When a -digit number is divided by , the first digits become the quotient, , and the last digits become the remainder, .
Therefore, can be any integer from to inclusive, and can be any integer from to inclusive.
For each of the possible values of , there are at least possible values of such that .
Since there is "extra" possible value of that is congruent to , each of the values of that are congruent to have more possible value of such that .
Therefore, the number of possible values of such that is .
Solution 2
Notice that . This means that any number whose quotient and remainder sum is divisible by 11 must also be divisible by 11. Therefore, there are possible values. The answer is .
