Sample text

If they began with only a number between 10 to 19 inclusive however, there will be just nine matches in the box when you rattle it. It is not hard to tell whether there are 9 or 18 in the box just from the rattle so, with a little practice, you will be able to guess right every time. If you become more skilled, you might try a box with more matches. If you place up to 39 in the box, you will need to be able to tell the difference between a box with 27 matches and one with 18 or 9, but this is not too difficult.

In the explicit working below, the places where we pause to tidy up the number in hand and replace it by a single digit are written in brackets. Once that is done we continue reading in the digits of the given number from left to right: 3 + 4 = 7; 7 + 0 = 7; 7 + 6 = 13, (1 + 3 = 4); 4 + 4 = 8; 8 + 9 = 17, (1 + 7 = 8); 8 + 9 = 17, (1 + 7 = 8); 8 + 6 = 14, (1 + 4 = 5); 5 + 1 = 6; 6 + 7 = 13, (1 + 3 = 4); 4 + 7 = 11, (1 + 1 = 2); 2 + 5 = 7; 7 + 8 = 15, (1 + 5 = 6); and hence a is a multiple of 3. Since 6 = 2 × 3, a number is divisible by 6 if and only if it satisfies the divisibility tests for 2 and for 3 simultaneously.

Begin by factorizing the divisor: 8008 is a palindrome of even length so has 11 as a factor and obviously has 8 as a factor also: dividing gives 8008 = 11 × 8 × 91 = 11 × 8 × 7 × 13, and so we need to test a for divisibility by these four numbers. Since 760/2 = 380, and 380 is divisible by 4, (because 80 is) it follows that a is a multiple of 8. We can test simultaneously for 7, 11, and 13 using the alternating sum: s = 760 − 858 + 098 = 0, and since 0 is certainly a multiple of all three numbers, we conclude that 8008 is indeed a factor of a.
