Which of the following statements are true?

(a) If a number is divisible by 3, it must be divisible by 9.

(b) If a number isd divisible by 9, it must be divisible by 3.

(c) A number is divisible by 18, if it is divisible by both 3 and 6.

(d) If a number is divisible by 9 and 10 both, then it must be divisible by 90.

(e) If two numbers are co-prime, at least one of them must be prime.

(f) All numbers which are divisible by 4 must also be divisible by 8.

(g) All numbers which are divisible by 8 must also be divisible by 4.

(h) If a number exactly divides two numbers separately, it must exactly divide their su,

(i) If a number exactly divides the sum of two numbers, it must exactly divide the two numbers separately.

Answer :

(a) False.


For example – 6 is divisible by 3, but it is not divisible by 9.


(b) True.


Example- 18, is divisible by 3 as well as 9 so, yes, If a number is divisible by 9, it must be divisible by 3.


(c) False.


If a number is divisible by 3 and 6, it is not neccessory that it is also divisible by 18..


Example – 42 it is divisible by 6 and 3 but not by 18.


(d) True.


As 9 × 10 = 90 So, if a number is divisible by 9 and 10 both, then it must be divisible by 90.


(e) False.


Example – 15 and 32 are co-prime and composite.


(f) False.


Example – 20 is divisible by 4 but not by 8. So, its not neccessory that all numbers which are divisible by 4 must also be divisible by 8.


(g) True.


As we know 8 = 2 × 4 so all numbers which are divisible by 8 must also be divisible by 2 and 4.


(h) True.


Example – 3 divides 6 and 9 separatly and 15, which is the sum of 9 and 6. So, if a number exactly divides two numbers separately, it must exactly divide their sum.


(i) False.


Example- 2 divide 12 but it doesn’t divide 3 and 9. So, if a number exactly divides the sum of two numbers, its not neccessory that it also divide the two numbers separately.
