Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can disregard december for this question, as nothing happens then, so you can consider it an 11month year. you would do \(100 \mod 11 = 1\), so add one month to your previous painting, i.e. the next painting will be in an september, and because 11 goes fully 9 times into 100, you add 9 years, so the next time will be september 2019
