Thanks, but there was a set of numbers on the example question. 0 works, what else?

(3n+9)/(n+1) it is wholly divided....

What do you mean by, wholly divided?

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

Right. But I'm pretty sure there are other values of n, that also leaves a remainder of 0

I think \[n = 3k1, k \in \mathbb{N}\]

if n is whole number, so negative integers can't be the solution, since whole number starts at 0,1,2,3,....

\[\frac{3n+9}{n+1}=\frac{3n+3+6}{n+1}=3+\frac{6}{n+1}\]so \(n+16\) and we have\[n+1=\pm1,\pm2,\pm3,\pm6\]

@mukushla are negative numbers also the solutions? since the question ask for n to be whole number

mukushlaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
u r right negatives are not solution
 one year ago

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

@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!
