Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the numbers are 7 and 14, 17/14 remainder of 3 17/(2*7) same thing 14+7 = 21 so 21/17 = 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so since 17=kq+3 then 173=kq or 14=kq. Since k is positive then q must also be positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.017/1 = 17 with no remainder so remainder is 0 not 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because 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
