4.
1. 5 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 3 + 2 = 34
34 isn't a multiple of 3 therefore 51,257,932 is not divisible by 3
2. 51257932
932 is not a multiple of 8 therefore 51257932 is not divisible by 8

3. 5 + 2 + 7 + 3 = 17
1 + 5 + 9 + 2 = 17
The difference of the sums of numbers in alternating positions is 0 hence it is divisible by 11
5. Total cash = 50 x 80000 + 120000
= 4120000
Remainder after deducting wife's share = 4120000 - 520000
= 3600000
