If 24x is a multiple of 3, where x is a digit, what is the value of x? (Since 24x is a multiple of 3, its sum of digits 6+x is a multiple of 3; so 6+x is one of these numbers: 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, ... . But since x is a digit, it can only be that 6+x = 6 or 9 or 12 or 15. Therefore, x = 0 or 3 or 6 or 9. Thus, x can have any of four different values.)

Dear Student

Let's say, 24x is a multiple of 3.
Then, according to the divisibility rule of 3, the sum of all the digits should be a multiple of 3. 2+4+x = 6+x
So, 6+x is a multiple of 3, and 6+x is one of these numbers: 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and so on. Since, x is a digit, the value of x will be either 0 or 3 or 6 or 9, and the sum of the digits can be 6 or 9 or 12 or 15 respectively.
Thus, x can have any of the four different values: 0 or 3 or 6 or 9.

Thanks
