Solution Digit number | Comment 30 of 39 |
For a given number to be divisible by 13, the sum of all the digits of the given number must be divisible by 13.
So when we add the 50 digits we get
(49+26th digit) which has to be divisible by 13.So the smallest value should be 3 which satisfies the given condition.
So the 26th digit has to be 3.
