Problem
In a certain card game, a player is dealt a hand of cards from a deck of distinct cards. The number of distinct (unordered) hands that can be dealt to the player can be written as . What is the digit ?
Solution 1
We're looking for the amount of ways we can get cards from a deck of , which is represented by .
We need to get rid of the multiples of , which will subsequently get rid of the multiples of (if we didn't, the zeroes would mess with the equation since you can't divide by 0)
, , leaves us with 17.
Converting these into, we have
~quacker88
Solution 2
Since this number is divisible by but not , the last digits must be divisible by but the last digits cannot be divisible by . This narrows the options down to and .
Also, the number cannot be divisible by . Adding up the digits, we get . If , then the expression equals , a multiple of . This would mean that the entire number would be divisible by , which is not what we want. Therefore, the only option is -PCChess
Solution 3
It is not hard to check that divides the number, As , using we have . Thus , implying so the answer is .
Solution 4
As mentioned above,
We can divide both sides of by 10 to obtain
which means is simply the units digit of the left-hand side. This value is
