# If 21y5 is a mult

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

Sum of digits of 21y5 = 2 + 1 + y + 5 = 8 + y

Hence, 8 + y should be a multiple of 9

This is possible when 8 + y is any one of these numbers 0, 9, 18, 27, and so on …

However, since y is a single digit number, this sum can be 9 only.

8 + y = 9

y = 9 - 8

y = 1

Therefore, y should be 1 only
