How many two – digit number leave the remainder 1 when divided by 5?

Solution: The first two – digit number dividable by 5 is 10. Therefore, first two digit numb er which would leave remainder 1 when divided by 5 is 11. The last two – digit number divisible by 5 is 95. Therefore, last two digit number which would leave remainder 1 when divided by 5 is 96. Now, we have, t_1=11, t_n=96, and d=5. We know that , t_n=a+(n-1)d ∴96=11+(n-1)5 ∴96-11=5(n-1) ∴85/5=(n-1) ∴17+1=n ∴n=18. Ans. There are 18 two – digit number leave the remainder 1 when divided by 5.
