1) When n is divided by 110 the remainder is 75.
2) When n is divided by 100 the remainder is 25.
n/100 gives remainder of 25. So, n=100m+25, where m is an integer.
(100m+25)/10 will give remainder of 5
Sufficient.
from 1:
n/110 gives remainder of 75. So, n=110q+75, where q is an integer.
(110q+75)/10 will give remainder of 5
Sufficient
IMO answer D

But I think in both case it is 5.
n = 110K +75
n can take any value.
st 2
n=100Q + 25
combining st 1 & st 2
100Q 110K =50
when Q=6,K=5 ;100Q 110K =50
finding n, 100Q+25 =625
Remainder when N divided by 10 is 5
Y cant D???
take n =325, when divided by 100 :R is 5
when divided by 110 : R is 105
take n = 425 ,when when divided by 100 :R is 5
when divided by 110 : R is 95
Inconsistent .
SO I picked C

st 1) n cant take any value n can be 185, 295, 405.... which would leave a remainder of 5 when divided by 10gmatmachoman wrote:

The question is basically asking us to find the units digit of n.narisipalli wrote:What is the remainder when integer n is divided by 10?
1) When n is divided by 110 the remainder is 75.
2) When n is divided by 100 the remainder is 25.
Now, when a number n is divided by D, giving a quotient Q and a remainder R
n = DQ + R
in both the statements, DQ will be a multiple of ten, with units digit as 0. and then we are adding 5 to the units digit by adding either 75 or 25. therefore, in both the cases, the units digit will be 5.
Hence, each statement individually is sufficient to answer the question.
