A number is divisible by 4, if the number formed by its last two digits is divisible by 44. A number is divisible by 8, if the number formed by its last three digits is divisible by 85. A number is divisible by 9, if the sum of its digits is divisible by 96. A number is divisible by 11, if, starting from the RHS,(Sum of its digits at the odd place) – (Sum of its digits at even place) is equal to 0 or 11x7. (a + b)

Percentage

32. To express x% as a fraction, we have x% = x / 10033. To express a / b as a percent, we have a / b = (a / b × 100) %34. If ‘A’ is R% more than ‘B’, then ‘B’ is

less

than ‘A’ byORIf the price of a commodity increases by R%, then the

reduction

in consumption, notto increase the expenditure is{100R / [100 + R] } %35. If ‘A’ is R% less than ‘B’, then ‘B’ is

more

than ‘A’ byORIf the price of a commodity decreases by R%, then the

increase

in consumption, not toincrease the expenditure is{100R / [100 - R] } %36. If the population of a town is ‘P’ in a year, then its population after ‘N’ years isP (1 + R/100)
