Solution to:
Notable Number
The number we are looking for is divisible by both 9 and 11.
Since 11 is a prime number, the number we are looking for has to be a multiple of 9 × 11 = 99.
There are only nine possibilities, because 2 × 99 = 198 is the smallest number with three digits that is divisible by 99,
and 10 × 99 = 990 is the largest number with three digits that is divisible by 99.
The solution is 891, because 198 = ^{2}/_{9} × 891.
