Math challenges are perfect learning activities to help kids learn and have fun too. Let’s see who can solve this one!

## Challenge:

If \(y = 7 × 10^{83}+3\), what is the remainder when y is divided by 9?

**A-** 0

**B-** 1

**C-** 2

**D-** 3

**E-** 4

### The Absolute Best Book** to ****challenge your Smart Student!**

The correct answer is B.

Divisibility rules for a divisor of 9:

A number is divisible by 9 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 9. For example 126 is divisible by 9, since, 1 + 2 + 6 = 9 is divisible by 9.

\(7 × 10^{83}+3 = 7, 000,…, 000 + 3 = 7,000 ,…,003\)

The sum of the digits is 10.
