# How do you solve the game where you Pick any two digit number then subtract the first digit then subtract the second digit and guess the answer?

Given a two digit number --> xy

The numerical value of that number is 10x + y (The x is in the ten's place and the y is in the one's place.)

So, if you subtract each digit from the original number, here is the resut:

10x + y - x - y = 9 x

Based on that simple algebra, the answer will always be nine times the first digit. People often tend to amaze others by making a seemingly random chart of numbers and prizes. THey claim to guess the prize that the person gets based on his number. The real trick is that All multiples of 9 are matched up with the same prize!

### What is bigger 0.1666666667 or 0.06666666667?

Look for the first digit that is different. In this case, the first digit after the decimal point. The number that has the larger digit in this position, is larger. If the first digit is the same, compare the second digit with the second digit, the third digit with the third digit, and so forth, until you find a difference.

### How many 4 digit codes can you get from the numbers 1 2 3 4 and 5?

For the first digit you have 5 options, whichever you choose for the first digit, you have 4 options for the second digit, etc.; so the number of combinations is 5 x 4 x 3 x 2. For the first digit you have 5 options, whichever you choose for the first digit, you have 4 options for the second digit, etc.; so the number of combinations is 5 x 4 x 3 x 2. For…

### How many three digit numbers can be formed that do not contain the number zero and no number can repeat?

Let's look at this digit-by-digit: The first digit can be any number 1-9: 9 choices The second digit can be any number 1-9 except the one that the first digit is: 8 choices The third digit can be any number 1-9 except the ones chosen by the first and second digits: 7 choices 9*8*7 = 504 total numbers

### How many different 7-digit telephone members are possible if the first digit can not be zero and no digit repeat?

There are 10 possible numbers that can be chosen. Since the first digit can't be 0, there are 9 selections for the first digit. The second number can include a 0, but can't include the first number chosen, so there are 9 selections for the second digit. Then there are 8 digits for the next number, 7 digits for the next number, and so on. Total telephone numbers are: 9*9*8*7*6*5*4 = 544320 phone numbers.

### How many possible 3 digit area codes can be created without repeating a number?

The number of 3-digit numbers with no repeated digits is simply 10x9x8 = 720, if you allow, for example, 012 as a 3-digit number. There are 10 digits, any of which might be the first digit. The second digit can be any digit except the digit that was used for the first digit, leaving 9 possibilities. The third digit then has 8 possibilities, since it can't be the same as the first or second digit…

### How do you turn two digit numbers in to tens?

If the second digit is 1, 2, 3 or 4 replace it by 0. If the second digit is 6, 7, 8 or 9 replace it by 0 and increase the first digit by 1. If the second digit is 5, then, if the first digit is even, replace the second digit by 0, if the first digit is odd, replace the second digit by 0 and increase the first digit by 1. Many people…

### How many 4 digit numbers can you make that contain 5?

There is a clever but tricky way to solve this. If we have to find the number of 4-digit integers that contains at least one 5, we can also find the number of all the 4-digit integers and the number of integers that do not contain any 5's and subtract it from the first number. This is called complementary counting. So, first of all, we must find the number of 4-digit numbers there are. There…

### What is the difference between a decimal point and a decimal place?

The decimal point of a number separates the whole part of the number from the fractional part of the number. It is located between the units column and the tenths column of every number. A decimal place is one of the digits after the decimal point: The first decimal place is the first digit, which is the tenths digit The second decimal place is the second digit, which is the hundredths digit The third decimal…

### How many three digit number contain the digit 2?

There are several ways to answer this. I think this is the easiest: Count the number of three-digit numbers: The first digit can be 1-9; the second and third digits can be 0-9. So, there are 9 choices for the first digit and 10 choices for the second and third digits. This gives you 9 x 10 x 10 = 900 three-digit numbers. Right? Then count the number of three-digit numbers that do NOT contain…

### You are a three digit number your tens digit is five more than your ones digit your hundreds digit is eight less than your tens digit What number are you?

194 Think of it as three separate numbers, A, B, and C (left to right). The first statement says B = C + 5 The second statement says A = B - 8 You know all three numbers have to be less than or equal to 9, and you know the first number has to be greater than or equal to 1 (otherwise you'd only have a two-digit number). So take the two statements, plus…

### How you can change digit 0 to 9 to letter?

You cannot. First: 0 to 9 is not one digit but 10 digits. Second: You cannot change a numeric digit to a letter. You cannot. First: 0 to 9 is not one digit but 10 digits.
