The Four-digit Number ABCDMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
There is a four-digit number ABCD, where A, B, C, D each represents a different digit from 1 to 9.
If ABCD is divisible by 13, BCDA is divisible by 11, CDAB is divisible by 9, and DABC is divisible by 7, what is the original number ABCD?
HintTry to link the clues together.
AnswerIf BCDA is divisible by 11, then so is ABCD, because both mean that A+C-B-D is divisible by 11.
If CDAB is divisible by 9, then so is ABCD, because both mean that A+B+C+D is divisible by 9.
Therefore, ABCD is divisible by 13*11*9=1287, the only possibilities are 1287, 2574, 3861, 5148, 6435, 7722, 9009.
Among them, excluding the two with repeated digits, only 3861 satisfies the last clue - 1386 is divisible by 7.
Therefore, ABCD is 3861.
