Hi,

I am unsure about the solutions here...20,39,58,77,96.  Not have a calculator so I can't give the full numbers but my thinking goes like this:

1) To be divisible by 170, the last digit of this number has to be zero.  It needs to be a multiple of ten.

2) 10 to any power (X) will be a multiple of ten. If you then subtract that number,  you will then only have a result multiple of ten if X is a multiple of ten.

Therefor: 20 could be a posible solution, but 39,58,77,96.

This disagrees with multiple comments.  What am I missing?
