    You need to find the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the 3 numbers. The issue is then the five day week. Divide the answer by 5 and determine the remainder. Then count that many weekdays from Tuesday.

    okay, each 5 days brings you back to the starting day. You just need to count the remainder number of days from the starting day

    right, either using the remainder count 2 weekdays from Tuesday or just using the LCM count 12 weekdays from Tuesday - either way you get THURSDAY
