## 10929 - You can say 11[edit]

## Summary[edit]

Determine if a large positive number is a multiple if 11.

## Explanation[edit]

If ABCDEFG is multiple of 11, then A-B+C-D+E-F+G... is also divisible by 11. Otherwise ABCDEFG isn't a multiple of 11.

Another method (similar to long-division on pen and paper) is to read digits one-by-one, and apply the modulus; this will work on any arbitrary number, while using primitive types. A number N is divisible by 11 if the final digit results in no remainder.

## Gotchas[edit]

Numbers can have leading zeros.
