Let for all n , natural numbers f(n) = product of non zero digits of n.find the largest prime divisor of

f(1) + f(2) + ...... + f(999).                                                         (the answer is 103)

The question is the largest prime no that divides f(n)

Lets simplify f(1)+f(2)+f(3)+f(4)+...+f(999)

= (1+2+3+4...+9)+1+(1+2+3+4+...+9)+2+2(1+2+3+4+...+9) +3+3(1+2+3+4+...+9) +...

On simpifying and using formula for summation of n natural no n(n+1)/2we get that the summation is 

Full solution is not given as u needed hints fr the question

((9*10)/2+1)((9*10)/2+1)((9*10)/2+1) -1 = (46*46*46)-1  97335

On prime factorization os 97335 we getthe last prime as 103 and hence we said tht the largest prime tht devides

Thnks for ur reply


But,what does 

product of non zero digits of n  


3 years ago

The product of non zero digits of n is like  f(999) = 9*9*9 , f(998)= 9*9*8, f(101)= 1*1 (0 not included)

How did u do this?

 f(1)+f(2)+f(3)+f(4)+...+f(999)= (1+2+3+4...+9)+1+(1+2+3+4+...+9)+2+2(1+2+3+4+...+9) +3+3(1+2+3+4+...+9) +...

This can be done in following way

This can be done in f(1)= 1, f(2)=2, ... ,f(9)=9 , f(10) = 1 , f(11) =(1*1), f(12)= (1*2), f(13)=(1*3),...f(19),f(20)= 2 , f(21)= (2*1) and so on

2.f(x) is a differentiable funcn. such that f(x)f(y) +2 = f(x) + f(y) +f(xy); f’(0)=0, f’(1)=2, then find f(x)
Given, f(x) f(y) + 2 = f(x) + f(y) + f(xy) f’(0) = 0, f’(1)= 2 Differentiatiing above expression with respect to y, f(x) f’(y) = 1 + f’(xy) x For y=1, f(x)...
