sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
see as it is divisible by 275 means y will be either 5 or, 0

and 275 = 5*5*11

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
that is the resultant should be divisible by 11

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
thus the 33xy2y should be divisible by 11. That is the difference of sum of digits at odd place with the sum of digits at even places should be either 0 or, 11, or, multiple of 11

sum of odd place digits is 5+x and sum of even place digit is 3 +2y

Difference is (5+x)  (3+2y) it should be either 0 / 11/ multiple of 11

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
difference is 2 + x  2y

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
y can be either 0 or, 5

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
when y = 0 therefore we have 2 + x (it should be 0 / 11 / multiple of 11) but in no case it is possible so Y cannot be 0

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
so when y = 5 then we have 2 + x  2*5 = 2 + x 10 = 8 + x

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
yes but then it is not divisible by 275

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
if x = 9 in that case it is not divisible by 275
 3 years ago

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
so it cannot be 9

sheg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
now we got 8 + x for what value of x u will have either 0 / 11 / multiple of 11
