In a six-digit number, the sixth, that is, the rightmost, digit is the sum of the first three digits, the fifth digit is the sum of first two digits, the third digit is equal to the first digit, the second digit is twice the first digit and the fourth digit is the sum of fifth and sixth digits. Then, the largest possible value of the fourth digit is
Correct Answer: 7
Let the six-digit number be ABCDEF
F = A+B+C, E= A+B, C=A, B= 2A, D= E+F.
Therefore D = 2A+2B+C = 2A + 4A + A= 7A.
A cannot be 0 as the number is a 6 digit number.
A cannot be 2 as D would become 2 digit number.
Therefore A is 1 and D is 7.
