I finished the questions with 15min to spare but 1 was probably the easiest because all you had to know was how to find a multiple of 8 and a multiple of 9.

If it is a multiple of eight, then the last 3 digits are a multiple of eight and if it is a multiple of 9, the digits add to a multiple of 9.

Therefore with some working out, b = 2 and a = 3

9. Anyone want to go through answers for pink kangaroo?... really curious on questions from 17 to 25 seeing as most of them were guesses
