Given a "8 digit number" abcdabcd.That means 1st digit =5th digit, 2nd digit =6th digit etc. Also, note that the smallest possible "8 digit number" is 10001(i.e.00010001). Prove this by induction that it is divisible by 137.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I can prove this actually but not able to find it by induction. I don't know how to present and start the assumption and k+1 phase.

Thanks for helping :)
