If 486*7 is divisible by 9, then the least value of * isA. 0B. 1C. 3D. 2

We know that if sum of digits of a number is divisible by 9, then the number is divisible by 9.

Here, for the given number to be divisible by 9

4 + 8 + 6 + * + 7 = multiple of 9

* + 25 = 0, 9, 18, ….(multiple of 9)

Hence,

*  + 25 = 27    [ lowest multiple then]
* = 2

∴ x = 2

∴ the least value of x is 2
