#### Question

If $\overline{{3x2}}$ is a multiple of 11, where x is a digit, what is the value of x?

#### Solution

$\text{ Sum of the digits at odd places }= 3 + 2 = 5$
Sum of the digit at even place = x
$\therefore\text{ Sum of the digit at even place - Sum of the digits at odd places }= (x - 5)$
$\because (x - 5) \text{ must be multiple by }11 .$
$\therefore\text{ Possible values of }(x - 5)\text{ are }0, 11, 22, 33 . . .$
$\text{ But }x\text{ is a digit; therefore }x\text{ must be }0, 1 , 2, 3 . . . 9 .$
$\therefore x - 5 = 0$
$\Rightarrow x = 5$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
