ok so since 17=kq+3 then 173=kq or 14=kq. Since k is positive then q must also be positive.

17/1 = 17 with no remainder so remainder is 0 not 3
 2 years ago

lawls Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
because you would have \[ \large \frac{17}{1}=17 \] and u would not have a remainder but u r told that u DO have a remainder
