# Thread: Find the missed digits

1. ## Find the missed digits

3608??88503???007860???25

This is a single number...

2. ## Re: Find the missed digits

Well dear, what are the conditions for me to fill the digits? If no conditions are present, each digit can take any value from 0-9.

PS: Update your post and fill in some more details.

Hey Kalayama,

Its true there r conditions behind filling it... but i'm not going to give it because thats the answer and u have to find it... Like u said each digit can take any value from 0 to 9...
Fill those place with appropriate digits(thats my question)... There is some concept behind filing the digits find it and fill it... In the question itself i mentioned its a single number(quite big its okay)...

Thanks
Manoj

Any clues manoj??

5. ## Re: Find the missed digits

Clue 1: 1,2,3..... play an important role...
Clue 2: 36085288503???007860???25

Thanks
Manoj

Yes Suresh is correct... The speciality about this number is that it is the biggest of all the Polydivisible number.... To know more about this Polydivisible number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

Good job suresh

Thanks
Manoj

8. ## Re: Find the missed digits

Well, actually the framingof the question was not too great.
For example,
"3608??88503???007860???25
This is a single number.."
. Since the question doesn't impose ANY consitions for the digits to be filled in,
Any of the below low can be answers.(None violate the conditions specified in the question).

3608128850334500786078925
3608988850376500786043225
....

In fact I can give 10^8 solution which satisfies the given conditions in the question.

Ideally any puzzle should define what it wants. And there should be finite number of solutions for a puzzle. Unfortunately, the question doesn't satisfy either conditions.

Is there anyone else who felt the same?

PS: Manoj, you are doing a good job in Brainteaser section. There's nothing personal here. I'm just trying to express what I felt about the puzzle.

9. ## Re: Find the missed digits

Hi Kalayama,

Before giving 10^8 solutions u need to know how many solutions are meaningful or carries some meaning... I think i didnt gave any condition in my question... but i dont y u said "In fact I can give 10^8 solution which satisfies the given conditions in the question."

Suresh understands the question and he have given the solution....

The concept behind this number is 3 is divisible by 1 , 36 is divisible by 2 , 360 is divisible by 3 , 3608 is divisible by 4 and so on.... I dont think this is difficult solution to find....

Tell me out of 10^8 solution how many solutions satisfies this condition...
I'm not offending u...

Thanks
Manoj

10. ## Re: Find the missed digits

I agree only one satisfies that condition. But, that condition was never mentioned in the question

Anyway Manoj, no harm done. I was too curious as to how a person can solve the puzzzle.

Suresh, On what basis did you solve the question? Please leave your reasoning on arriving the answer. I'm curious as to how one can solve this puzzle logically.

-Kalayama

11. Hey Kalayama,

Its kind of funny... If i give that condition in the question then wat is the meaning of posting a question... Its like giving answer with the question... I think u also know this... I have answered this to you in my first post itself... I'm sure the solution that i had given is purely logical...

Thanks
Manoj

I fully agree with you that the solution was logical. But, how can I "Logically" arrive at the solution just by reading your question? How should I know that number should be of this format? There is no link!

Why shouldn't reaosn like, the missing digits should be 1-9. Or 9 to 1? That was my doubt.

Anyway, this discussion has already stretched far too long. Let's leave it at this. If you want to have more of this discussion, please PM me

(I will be too happy to see someone posting what made them to think the number was "Polydivisible" though )

Anyway. Suresh, please do the honours of deleting the posts which are irrelevant to the thread as my resent posts might have been off topic.

-Kalayama

Hi Kalayama,

Can u tell me a digit more than 0 to 9... there is difference between number and digit... i dont know y u r arguing like this... My question itself says "Find the missed digits".... Sorry man i'm agreeing my question is wrong... I dont want to continue this argument any more....

Thanks
Manoj

Hey dude. You don't have to be sorry. This argument which is going on, is just in quest of a logic. Nothing more.

When I said the digit 9-1 I meant missing digits are just digits in decending order. That is, 3608988850376500786043225 (Oops! I could use only till 2 not 1!). Similarly when I said 1-9.

Anyways, Manoj. Let's drop the issue and waite for Suresh to post how he arrived at his solution. That will pretty much solve my doubts I believe.

-Kalayama

PS: Surech, once again if my posts are off-topic, kindly delete them.

12. ## Re: Find the missed digits

Hi Kalayama,

First of all i am thinking about the number is "sum of prime numbers". because i saw these kind of puzzles in some other site. but here which is not satisfy the condition...

Also i heard the concept of polynumber when i solve the puzzle in some other site. At that time i don't know about this.

Check it in google about the polynumbers and then find out this number.

I am not solving this puzzle logically....Well both of you want to delete your post...i just merge your post..ok...
