Problem

Let $S$ be the set of integers $0,1,2,...,10^{11}-1$. An element $x\in S$ (in) is chosen at random. Let $\star (x)$ denote the sum of the digits of $x$. The probability that $\star(x)$ is divisible by 11 is $\frac{m}{n}$ where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers. Compute the last 3 digits of $m+n$

Solution

This problem needs a solution. If you have a solution for it, please help us out by adding it.


Counting all $2$, $3$, and $4$ digit combinations and then permuting only those up to $2045$, we find that there are 186 numbers whose sums are either $11$ or $22$. We need not account for the sum 33, as it is not achievable with a $2$ as the lowest digit. Since there are a total of $2048$ numbers and $186$ that work, we get $186/2048$ or $93/1024$. Our sum is then $93 + 1024 = 1117$. The last three digits are $117$.
