Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks, but there was a set of numbers on the example question. 0 works, what else?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(3n+9)/(n+1) it is wholly divided....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0means the remainder is zero(0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. But I'm pretty sure there are other values of n, that also leaves a remainder of 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think \[n = 3k1, k \in \mathbb{N}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if n is whole number, so negative integers can't be the solution, since whole number starts at 0,1,2,3,....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{3n+9}{n+1}=\frac{3n+3+6}{n+1}=3+\frac{6}{n+1}\]so \(n+16\) and we have\[n+1=\pm1,\pm2,\pm3,\pm6\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mukushla are negative numbers also the solutions? since the question ask for n to be whole number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u r right negatives are not solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0only solutions are \(n=0,1,2,5\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@mayankdevnani everyone who helped. @chihiroasleaf @mukushla Sorry, I translated this from another language. I think the correct term was integer. Thanks again to everyone for your input!
