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

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

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

mukushla Group TitleBest 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!
