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

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

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

    I think \[n = 3k-1, k \in \mathbb{N}\]

    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 \(n+1|6\) 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

    @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!
