answers:
Bulldog redux say: Yes, eleven goes into eleventy eleven eleven times with eleven left over.

Ian H say: seventy seven = 70 + 77 is divisible by 11
If the number system continued that way, eleventy eleven would mean 110 + 11.
So the idea is sort of correct, except that we call that number 121.

You may have been joking, but in case you really are unsure, notice that the tens go as
ninety 90, one hundred 100, one hundred and ten 110, one hundred and twenty 120 and so on.

BigBird say: In a number system with a base higher than ten, numbers higher than nine are assigned new symbols: typically 10 becomes a, eleven becomes b, twelve becomes c, etc. In such a system, eleventy eleven would be “bb”. Considering that 44 is divisible by 4, and 99 is divisible by 9, one might assume that bb is divisible by b. (Note: bb would be 11 x base + 11. Dividing by 11 yields base + 1 )
