# If 1 P

__× P__

Q 6

where Q - P = 3, then find the values of P and Q.

__× P__

**Solution:**

If P × P = __number__ ending in 6 then

P = 4 or 6

If P = 4 then

1 4

__× 4__

5 6

Q - P = 5 - 4 = 1, which is not the desired condition.

If P = 6 then

1 6

__× 6__

9 6

Q - P = 9 - 6 = 3, which is the desired condition.

P = 6 and Q = 9

**✦ Try This: **If

1 P

__× P__

Q 5

where Q - P = 2, then find the values of P and Q.

If P × P = number ending in 5

P = 5

If P = 5 then

1 5

__× 5__

7 5

Q = 7

Q - P = 7 - 5 = 2, which is the desired condition.
