A and B are both two digit numbers. If A and B contain the same digits but in reverse order, what integer must be a factor of (A + B)?
A + B = 10 x + y + 10y + x = 11x + 11y = 11(x+y) So, 11 must be a factor of A + B.

The key to DS problems dealing with FDP's is to
rephrase questions / statements into equations in order to keep track of what you know and what you need to know…
DS: If a brokerage firm charged a commission of 2% of the total dollar amount of a certain trade, what was the total dollar amount of that trade? I. The dollar amount of the trade minus the brokerage firm's commission was $88,000. II. The brokerage firm's commission decreased the profit earned on the trade by 20%.
d = total dollar amount of trade. Let c - brokerage firm's commission -> c = .02d Test each statement, writing equations to represent information. If the info in the statement can be combined w/ the info in the question to ield a single equationwith the single variable d, then the statement is sufficient: I.: d - c = $88,000 Rephrase: d - .02d = 88,000. Sufficient. II. P = profit before commission. p - c = .80p. We do not know p, the amount of profit before commission, so you cannot solve for c, the brokerage firm's commission. Not Sufficient.
