How many two-digit numbers are divisible by 5?

Activity :-  Two-digit numbers divisible by 5 are, 10, 15, 20, ......, 95.

Here, d = 5, therefore this sequence is an A.P.

Here, a = 10, d = 5, tn = 95, n = ?

tn = a + (n − 1) `square`

`square` = 10 + (n – 1) × 5

`square` = (n – 1) × 5

`square` = (n – 1)

Therefore n = `square`

There are `square` two-digit numbers divisible by 5

Solution

Two-digit numbers divisible by 5 are, 10, 15, 20, ......, 95.

Here, d = 5, therefore this sequence is an A.P.

Here, a = 10, d = 5, tn = 95, n = ?

tn = a + (n − 1) d

 ∴ 95 = 10 + (n – 1) × 5

∴ 95 – 10 = (n – 1) × 5

∴ 85 = (n – 1) × 5

∴ `85/5` = (n – 1)

∴ 17 = (n – 1)

∴ n = 17 + 1

Therefore n = 18

There are 18 two-digit numbers divisible by 5
